‘Circus' is a new and exciting 6-part series that follows the travelling company of the Big Apple Circus. Taking the viewer beyond the face paint and routine performances and into the heart of the Circus family, the series meets the real characters that form the circus community. We follow the stories of a horse groom, a trapeze artist, and the founder of Big Apple Circus, who are all struggling with the decision to stay with the circus or to leave it behind. But when a major act in the show is fired and another performer is diagnosed with cancer, the pressure is on for everyone to pull together to ensure the show lives up to being one of the best circuses in the world. As the members of Big Apple Circus share their fears and frustrations, triumphs and failures, it is the drama that unfolds along the way that will feed our curiosity and reveal so much about a world that is so different from our own.
