Circus and the Art of the Amazing
Historian Dominique Jando explains why the circus is an important part of our culture.
Big Apple kids tell us what they like about growing up circus.
Clowns are never sure what's funny until the moment of truth - in front of an audience.
Many performers who grew up in the circus find it difficult to imagine another kind of life. Luciano and Gladis Anastasini who are in charge of this year's dog act, are no exception. Seven generations of circus performers have preceded them. Both grew up in the circus, and it is the only life they have ever known. The question is, will their sons Adriano and Brando carry on the family legacy?
