LEWISTON — A circus? in Lewiston? In January?

With winter in full swing, it’s hard to imagine such a thing, but Friday the group Aerial Jade is bringing its act to Park Street.

Dubbed the “Mid-Winter Aerial Showcase,” the performance runs between 5 and 8 p.m. at 22 Park St. and will feature six performers using everything from hoops to silks and lyra, an aerial hoop.

“There are six girls, including myself, who are trained and we’ll be putting on eight full performances,” Danielle Hirsh, who runs Aerial Jade, said.

Hirsh is an artist who also works with a local burlesque group. She also teaches circus performance locally and the Friday night show will be her second aerial showcase in the area. The first was in October.

Tickets are $20 at the door.
