Parade The Collective at Core Contemporary Gallery

With six Las Vegas Strip reveals presently in production and an ownership stake in a seventh (Blue Male Group), Cirque du Soleil’s local footprint total up to a little army of creatives. They appear quite pleased in their jobs, however if you do the same thing day-in and day-out– even if that thing is the most amazing acrobatic feat someone from the Midwest has ever seen– you’re most likely to start feeling stuck in a rut. You’ll feel the need to hone your chops, to swerve out of your lane.

That’s where PARADE The Collective, now in its 13th year, comes into play. A group program comprised of Cirque performers and crew, PARADE enables Cirque’s lots of skills to indulge their love of painting, photography, sculpture, costuming and multimedia art. Tell you what: Just take a look at the opening night reception on December 6 at 6:30 p.m. and mingle with the artists and team members themselves. Like all Cirque productions, PARADE makes a lot more sense if you just dedicate to jumping in at the deep end. December 1-29, Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., free. — Geoff Carter
