Oct. 16 Cirque de Gothique Bedouin Star Studio, 800A Fort Crook Rd. 7 p.m., FREE, bedouinstar.com Forget lions, tigers and bears — the second installment of Cirque de Gothique is underway. Isis Prentice, owner of Bellevue’s Bedouin Star Studio, is gearing up to host a talent show featuring everything from hula-hoopers and ninjas to magicians and comedians. Dubbed “An Evening of Avant Garde Entertainment,” the free event promises the strange and unique area talents. “I’m a professional dancer,” Prentice says. “Although I love dance, I grew tired of seeing nothing but dance at events I was attending. I decided to organize a show and seek as much variety as possible.” Prentice hopes for a larger audience this year to expose those gifted individuals who can swallow swords and light themselves on fire. Who knew? Nebraskans must have some crazy hidden talents bubbling under their Husker t-shirts. It’s time for those stereotypes to be broken and the Cirque de Gothique is an ideal place to start.
