City in Focus: Summer Circus Act

By Samira Bouaou, Epoch Times

Artists from around the world come to New York every summer for the Summer Stage festival, which features a slate of free performances provided by the City Parks Foundation. A circus night was held Tuesday, Aug. 19, at Marcus Garvey Park showcasing performers from the Big Apple Circus and Throw2Catch, Canada’s globally recognized circus troupe. The audience enjoyed gravity-defying acrobatic and juggling skills as well as the charming Québécois accent.
