Circus Now!

"The American Circus is Back"

Working with over sixty circus organizations nationwide to host events in seven cities: New York, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, Seattle, and San Francisco. Circus Now will be an exciting and informative showcase of the American circus as it exists today. Imagine a live circus documentary, a series of TED talks fused with a cabaret of insanely gifted performersand all from your hometown.

Timed to correspond with the release of The Ordinary Acrobat by Duncan Wall, an investigation and celebration of the circus as an art, Circus Now aims to spark a cultural conversation about circus in America today. What does the circus actually look like? What makes people care about it so deeply? What makes it a tool for social good?

We also intend on concrete action, by circulating a petition to venues and the 100 most important American arts funders, including all 50 state arts councils, calling for a renewed regard for the circus as an art.

So if you're a circus practitioner, artist, or fan, come join us! Help organize or spread the word, sign the petition, or just like us on Facebook.  If you're just curious, come discover more! The circus is an art with a history of diversity and inclusion dating back thousands of years. We'd love to show you what it looks like today: a diverse, beautiful, progressive, inspiring, physically challenging form of creative expression.
