The Moscow International Circus
The son of a ringmaster and a bear-trainer, Cornell “Tuffy” Nicholas couldn’t have been more prepared to lead the Moscow International Circus. Coming up on its 140th anniversary, the current incarnation of the company lives up to the “International” part of its name with performers from the Czech Republic, Mongolia, Brazil, Kazakhstan, and Hawaii.
Aerialist Ana Koval specializes in hair-hanging—which is exactly what it sounds like—while other high-flying performers take to suspended hoops and a skyscraping unicycle built for two.
Thrills in the Family
Many of the acts are sitcom-ready family performers, such as the acrobatic, juggling Aristov Family and the living nesting dolls of the Bertini Family, whose youngest member is just four.
A Clown of All Colors
Olex Kurtukov’s clowning comes in all flavors, and his characters range from American face clowns to European-style clowns to a mime. He also squeezes into an inflatable costume of his own invention to play the “bouncing ballerina.”
Fire-dancer and martial artist Susanna “SeaFire” Walczak-Pol hails from Maui, and even if audiences don’t recognize Honolulu-born Jordan Segundo from his roles on stage, they might know him from his stint on American Idol, his TV hosting gigs around the islands, or when they saw him at the supermarket.
