Rather than running away to join a circus, Matthew Brouillard formed his own -- and for college credit, to boot.

With a $1,200 budget, the 21-year-old Olin College student enlisted 20 performers from the Needham college and from Wellesley College to show off their talents in the elaborate juggling act of poi spinning, acrobatics, and aerial silk dancing.

Performances will be held at 5 and 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Richard W. Sorenson Center for the Arts at Babson College in Wellesley.

Tickets are $10, $5 for students and children. All proceeds will go to
the Sharing Foundation, which benefits Cambodian children.
