Big Apple Circus: Fun2C

Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus’s pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations’ worth of circus traditions. A look at any show’s cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing down the arts of juggling and trapeze through the years with grin-inducing clowns, bendy contortionists, and supremely steady hand balancers.

You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York’s Battery Park.

Mayo Performing Arts Center

The Mayo Performing Arts Center straddles time. While one foot is planted in the old-fashioned charm of the 1930s movie-palace golden age, the other is firmly in the tech-savvy modern day. Between is a stretch of history that saw the theater fall into disrepair and then resurrect itself to its star-studded heyday thanks to volunteers. Since its 1994 rebirth, the center has welcomed everyone from the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg to Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. But, if the Mayo Center were a tripod, its third foot would certainly reach toward the future—a suite of education studios is on site to cultivate the next generation of performers.
