Cirque Italia, a non-animal cirque-style circus, will be at Gulfport Premium Outlets, 10000 Factory Shop Blvd., Gulfport, Thursday through April 17.

Cirque Italia is held under a traditional spiraling white-and-blue big top, but it is anything but a traditional circus.

The show features a performance of dancing water forming what promises to be unbelieveable images and other acts from around the globe, including:

• Clown, Coco

• Hand balancing

• Straps — a woman is suspended only by fabric and friction, she gracefully soars through the air

• Laserman — a visit from the future

• Dinosaur act — a blast from the ancient past

• Contortion — try this and your chiropractor will be able to retire

• Rolla Bolla — an elaorate balancing act on a platform surrounded by water

• Perch act — a man holds a 20-foot pole, and a woman climbs the pole and balances

• High Wire Duo

• Chair balancing

• Juggling cube

• Roller Skate Duo

• BMX
