If you’ve been by Woodland Hills Mall, you may have noticed there’s a circus in town. It includes trapeze artists, acrobatics and contortion all performed around a unique stage. Cirque Italia travels across the country with performers from all over the world. The entire show happens on a stage filled with 35,000 gallons of water. Water rains down from the ceiling as performers show off acrobatic skills from 35 feet high.

Cirque Italia clown and ringmaster Alex Acero says it's one of three stages in the world. He says there’s one in Dubai, one in Las Vegas and this week, in Tulsa. "We have performers from Brazil, Argentina, Portugal, Romania, France, Cuba and Mexico,” Acero said. You'll see acts from juggling to an aerial lyra duo to bubble contortion. This family-friendly show is 1950's themed and Acero even dresses up as Elvis Presley.
