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.
With the sudden passing of Gladis Espana Anastasini's father, Gladis and Brando fly down to the funeral. Here, we see that friends from the larger circus community have come to pay their respects to a brilliant performer who loved putting on a show. And we meet Gladis' extended family, the brothers and sisters she used to fly with in their family act - the Espana Flying Trapeze troupe.
