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.
Walden, New York is home base of the Big Apple Circus. Here, the 150 members of the company gather from all over the country and the world to put together a new show for their year-long, town-to-town tour. As the sets are built, costumes designed and fitted, acts rehearsed and refined, we get acquainted with the members of the Big Apple family.
