Diverse, multi-abled Omnium Circus to play one special matinee

'I’Mpossible' — a world-class, fully inclusive, fully accessible circus show — comes to Capital One Hall on February 26.

Last year, Omnium Circus — the innovative, bold circus dedicated to inclusivity and diversity — had to cancel its plans for a local live show under a big top. But now, transformed for the stage, the circus brings its world-class, fully inclusive, fully accessible show I’Mpossible to Capital One Hall in Tysons for one special public performance on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at 2:00 pm. Tickets are on sale now for the circus The New York Times calls, “genuinely extraordinary.”

Led by Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson, the talented and diverse cast of circus superstars presents a death-defying, awe-inspiring, and hilarious circus adventure. I’Mpossible is a show where there are no limits, no boundaries, and no barriers. Prepare to be amazed by the extraordinary multi-abled company. Featuring gravity-defying aerial acts, mind-blowing contortion, unbelievable balance, hysterical high-skilled comedy, and much more, Omnium Circus is fun for the entire family.

This is the only circus in the world to be presented bilingually in English and American Sign Language. Unprecedented accessibility including live audio description, relaxed seating for neurodiverse and sensory sensitive audience members, and other accommodations truly make Omnium a live experience that is accessible for all.

Founder and Executive Director Lisa B. Lewis said, “After the challenges of 2021, we are excited to finally be able to move forward with Omnium as we kick things off with our show at Capital One Hall. But this is not a one-off performance. Rather, it is the first step in an exciting journey we look forward to sharing with you this year.”
