Born to be Circus
Performers who grew up in the circus find it difficult to imagine another kind of life.
Down the Road
As the tent comes down for the last time, we say one final "see you down the road."
Glen and Mark's Pre-Show Rituals
Glen and Mark share their pre-show rituals. Mark stretches; Glen pretends to stretch.
Glen Gets a New License
Preparing for a year on the road, Glen goes to the local DMV to renew his license.
The Espana Funeral
Friends from the larger circus community pay their respects to a beloved performer.
Preview: Gladis and Luciano
Luciano and Gladis both grew up in the circus, and it's the only life they can imagine.
Amid the final performances, we hear about everyone's plans for the future. Many will be leaving Big Apple Circus. Some have consciously chosen a different path. Others have no idea what they're going to do next. As the trailers pull out of the lot, and the tent comes down for the last time, we join in the time-honored circus farewell: not "goodbye," but "see you down the road."
