Editor’s Fanfare:

Certain elements of the contemporary circus have brought punk culture to the circus in the desire to give it greater relevance.  Is this the way to go?

FYI:

Young companies continue to expand their programs and enjoy new successes

 

Feature:

Elliana Grace (nee Hentoff-Killian) is the youngest female human cannonball in the world.  She is made her professional debut with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.  She shares the  excitement and joy she feels to find herself in such a position so early in her career.
