Circus
Donate

created & performed by Aytahn Ross

YEGOLI turns the every day into an adventure with a live circus and comedy show for all ages! Featuring amazing physical tricks and stunts, as well as elegant and silly moments that will warm your heart. This highly visual performance will happen outside of buildings where the audience can watch a live show safely from their windows or balconies right in the heart of the city. YEGOLI is a word that combines YEG for Edmonton and OLI for Oliver which is exactly where the performances will happen. This is the first time Found Fest will feature a show across the river in this neighbourhood that is the most densely populated in the city. The artist behind YEGOLI has been seen live by 1 million people in 13 countries around the world. He’s had repeat invitations to Just for Laughs, sold-out shows at the National Arts Centre, and performed with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. Don’t miss your chance to see him live at your doorstep!

This is a distanced private performance for a predetermined audience uniquely impacted by the circumstances of the pandemic. For the safety of the audience and the performer, dates and times of the performance won’t be posted. Sorry about that, Foundster! This one’s for those unable to leave where they are.

PSST! Hey Foundsters – COVID-19 is real and we want you to stay safe and healthy. All of our programming is designed to be experienced solo or with your designated cohort/house group/pod. Please don’t gather in large groups. Please mask up. Please keep a safe distance from others. And please review Alberta Health Services’ recommendations here and here.

We find ourselves in Amiskwaciwâskahikan (ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ) on Treaty 6 territory, traditional lands of the Cree, Nakota, Blackfoot, Dene, Saulteaux, Metis, and other indigenous peoples who have made this place home long before we settled here. For thousands of years, people have gathered here to share in story, community, and creative exchange.

We find ourselves thankful: thankful to play a small part in that long-standing tradition, a tradition carried on the shoulders of so many creators, builders, dreamers, agitators, and makers who came before us, and who will come long after us.

We find ourselves inspired: inspired by an evolving community of artists who passionately spark the magic that manifests when we surrender ourselves to the long summer days of this northern place.

We find ourselves grateful: grateful to everyone who rallies around this tiny but mighty Festival — the artists, the volunteers, the staff, the audience, the board, the mentors, the partners and sponsors, the funders, the believers. Found Festival exists because of you.
