To illustrate the humanity that’s at the core of the Big Apple Circus, AKA NYCs Content team worked closely with its performers and creatives alike, highlighting the stories of those that bring the Circus to life through an episodic series of portraits, guiding us to the opening of the show.

The series captured the naturalism of their environments, and swell with the rhythm of their subjects, through a combination of intimate footage, still photography and evocative textures.

Over 4 episodes, we followed the underlining theme of the sense of community, unwavering commitment, and passion these individuals have for their craft during the rehearsal process before the finale that leads to the tent going up, proudly announcing to audiences that they can once again witness the wonders of the BIG APPLE CIRCUS at last.
