Big Apple Circus
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.
