The Balancing Act: Walking the Pandemic Tightrope - Circus Events - CircusTalk

On October 10, 2020, Circus Harmony premeired The Balancing Act: Walking the Pandemic Tightrope, featuring  Circus Harmony students and alumni sharing how they are keeping their balance in this unbalanced time. Jessica Hentoff, Circus Harmony’s Artistic/Executive Director says, “This is a show unlike any we have ever done before for a time unlike any we have ever been in before. This is an interesting and inspirational show presented by young people who will be most impacted by the worlds’ current events. This is their personal point of view told circus-style! “


 


Circus is about humans overcoming challenges. Our entire world is challenged right now. When this global pandemic hit St. Louis, Circus Harmony had to close their school and, at the same time, all their outreach locations closed as well. One by one, all their shows- like Circus Flora, and all projects- like their Peace Through Pyramids partnership in Puerto Rico, were canceled. At the same time, alumni who were touring the world with different circuses and attending different circus colleges were sent home. Hentoff shares, “As a nonprofit social circus school, we feel like we are walking a tightrope. Under normal circumstances, we know how to walk a tightrope, however, the length keeps getting extended.”  


 


Jessica continues, “When you are learning to walk a tightrope, if you start to lose your balance, you don't stay in one place and fight to get it back. The best thing to do to regain your balance is to take your next step forward. As a nonprofit social circus school, we feel like we are walking a tightrope. Under normal circumstances, we know how to walk a tightrope, however, the length keeps getting extended.”


 


From their living rooms, backyards, family rooms, and local parks, Circus Harmony students and alumni have created new acts and tell the stories of how they see what is going on in the world right now from the pandemic to the presidential election to racial justice. Circus Harmony thinks you will be inspired by their strength, grace, and resilience. 


 


The show is something the whole family can watch together. It features great circus acts, wonderful young people, and some insight on keeping your balance in this unbalanced time! Like the circus itself, the show is daring and funny, exciting and entertaining, heart-stopping, and heart-warming. The show is something the whole family can watch together. It features great circus acts, wonderful young people, and some insight on keeping your balance in this unbalanced time!
