CIRCLE OF SAWDUST: The Mud, Myth, Mayhem and Magic of Circus! with Rob Mermin
STEP RIGHT UP! True circus stories of high adventure and low comedy.

CIRCLE OF SAWDUST: The Mud, Myth, Mayhem and Magic of Circus! with Rob Mermin

Rob Mermin, founder of the international youth company Circus Smirkus, will entertain with an afternoon of personal anecdotes and film clips on circus history at the School of Acrobatics & New Circus Arts, 674 S. Orcas St., Seattle, WA 98108 on Sunday, March 13 3:00-6:00pm. Included in the presentation are clips from 25 Hollywood circus feature films. Enjoy Mermin's illustrated tales of wacky characters and wild escapades!

Mermin is an award-winning performer, with Copenhagen's Gold Clown, Russia's Best Director Prize, and the Governor's Award of Excellence, Vermont's highest honor in the arts. Mermin trained with the renowned mimes Marcel Marceau and Etienne Decroux, and is also a former Dean of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College.

Mermin ran off to join the circus as a teen in the late 60's. During the next forty years his circus adventures took him clowning with tent shows in Wales, mule wrangling in Lapland with Sweden's Circus Scott, riding with the Magyars in the Hungarian State Cirkusz, three years with the famous Benneweis Circus Building in Copenhagen, and entertaining royalty in the circus palaces of Europe and Russia.

In 1987, he founded Circus Smirkus, which The Boston Globe called "one of New England's most treasured cultural and educational resources."
