A Little Bit About The Big Apple Circus: Dance On
The spectacular Big Apple Circus leaps into its 33rd Season with a thrilling All-New Show,Dance On!
The World’s Greatest Circus artists swing into action in the spotlight under our intimate Big Top, where no seat is more than 50 feet from the ring! Invited to the dance: an awesome troupe of monocyclists and lasso twirlers from China! A mind–bending group of Mongolian contortionists! A kinetic collection of Kenyan athletes who shimmy up a pole as though gravity were a joke! A herd of hoofers — twelve miniature horses in an equine chorus line! And an Ethiopian juggler with a lively up–tempo act that’s hard to beat! Your Host is our charming and charismatic Ringmaster Kevin Venardos, aided with antic abandon by star clowns Rob Torres and of course, our leggy, lovable laugh–riot Grandma! With live music by the Big Apple Circus Band, there’ll be cavorting in the aisles — and even you and your family will be dancing in your seats!
This year's production is directed by Eric Michael Gillett, choreographed by Peter Pucci, with costumes by Ann Hould-Ward, set design by Todd Rosenthal, lights by Brian Nason and soud by J P Perreaux.
Be sure to watch CIRCUS, the multi-part documentary premiering November 3rd, 9–11 PM ET on PBS stations. It’s an intimate six–hour behind–the–scenes look at the lives of Big Apple Circus artists and staff during the 2008-09 season, produced by the award–winning documentary team Show of Force.
