Morinville – There were no elephants or tigers at Saturday’s Circus Montreal, just an immigrant named Alfonso, better known as entertainer Aytahn Ross. The multi-talented performer put on two shows at the Cultural Centre during the Light Up the Night Festival Saturday as well as two workshops to demonstrate some of his talents.

Ross’ performance weaves juggling, plate spinning, balancing, magic and comedy into one simple story of an immigrant making his way in Canada.
