Family Month is in full swing at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill and next up is an interactive performance by the National Circus Project (NCP) on Friday, February 15 at 6 p.m. This event - featuring circus arts from around the world - juggling, unicycling, balancing, and object manipulations - is perfect for every member of the family. The performers will encourage the audience to get involved and even participate.

"We are delighted to welcome the National Circus Project to kick off Family Month at the Museum," said Jillian Bock, Museum Education Associate. "Their interactive performance allows audience members to become active participants in the show—and learn some circus skills on their own!"

The National Circus Project packs a panoramic presentation of circus skills into its sensational comedy-variety shows. At the Friday program, two members of the group will perform, followed by a mini workshop where participants may try their hand at circus skills including juggling, western rope spinning, and feather balancing. The seasoned, professionally trained performers/teachers make learning circus skills easy and exciting for people of all ages.

"Our upcoming workshops provide many opportunities for families to work collaboratively through movement, art-making, and even coding," remarked Bock.

The National Circus Project specialists have presented more than 12,000 circus performances and conducted more than 60,000 workshops involving more than six million participants. NCP founder Jean Paul Jenack established in-school circus programs in 1974. Ten years later, he and founder Meryl Schaffer incorporated Circus Education Specialists, Inc. (CES), which became the National Circus Project in 1988.

Additional upcoming events and activities for Family Month include a Film & Live Performance: 4 Little Girls: Moving Portraits of the American Civil Rights Movement, LEGO Night, Bilingual Family Gallery Talk and Art Workshop, Winter Vacation Art Workshops, and Community Day.

Admission to the National Circus Project performance is free for children, and included in admission for adults.

The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, visit parrishart.org.
