The Big Apple Circus presents LUMINOCITY!!!
Tucked away in a corner of Lincoln Center, is something that simply cannot be overlooked. At first glance, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but from the moment my family set foot inside, our world was transformed into a magnificent adventure, with excitement at every turn!
The Big Apple Circus has been entertaining audiences of all ages for 36 years. New York’s original one-ring circus returns to Damrosch Park, at Lincoln Center in a big way! The all-new show celebrates the excitement of the city, in a performance entitled ‘Luminocity.’
Upon entering the big top, you are immediately entranced by the Ringmaster, Mr. John Kennedy Kane, who “conducts your tour” throughout the show. Luminocity sets the stage in the heart of the city – Times Square – where the audience members are introduced to performers from around the globe, that help create an awe-inspiring atmosphere.
Whether it’s the hot dog vendor, who captivates his audience with his amazing juggling talents, or the construction workers, who manage to use unbelievable strength to balance and pose in near impossible ways, everyone in your family will be amazed. I couldn’t help but hold my breathe when watching the Duo Guerrero (comprised of Werner Guerrero and Aura Cardinali from Portugal), as they jump rope and dance across the sky on their high wire. My son was also impressed by the talents of the Dosov Troupe and they burst through the air off the teeterboard (and on stilts!) like fireworks!
There are so many other wonderful performances during the Big Apple Circus. For example,
the “dog-walker”, better known as Jenny Vidbel (from the US) who manages to capture the hearts of spectators with her adorable puppies and magnificent horses, with an added surprise or two!
Then there are the “Businesswomen” who become graceful trapeze artists, swinging in unison, soaring high above the audience on a double trapeze. All these incredible acts and much, much more are what you and your family have to look forward to when you get a chance to enjoy the experience that Luminocity delivers.
Experience the instant connection between audience and artist as your family sits less than 50 feet from the ring. No seat is a bad seat, and wherever you are, you feel a part of the excitement. The Big Apple Circus is also a not-for-profit performing arts and outreach institution committed to “invigorating the communities we serve with the joy and wonder of classical circus.” Tax-deductible contributions made by corporations, foundations and individuals enable the Big Apple Circus to bring its special magic to diverse audiences through its outreach programs — Clown Care[SM], Vaudeville Caravan[SM], Circus After School[SM], Circus For All!® and Circus of the Senses® — as well as its critically acclaimed performances.
