Bill Irwin will once again prove just how serious a business being a clown can be. He’s to be named the Evolving Circus Honoree at the 2nd Annual Celebration of American Circus. His compadre David Shiner from Old Hats, returning to the Pershing Square Signature Center on January 26th, will roast and toast Irwin while presenting him the honor.
Circus Now together with the Big Apple Circus have planned a big event to spotlight and celebrate the achievements of the circus arts. The 2nd Annual Celebration…, at Lincoln Center on January 5th, brings a new Lifetime Achievement Award to be presented by Dolly Jacobs of the Circus Sarasota to Hovey Burgess, teacher, high-wireist and circus legend.
The evening is planned as ceremony and performance, honoring four artists and/or organizations that have been prominent in the circus arts landscape in America, while spotlighting the thriving state of the circus arts across the nation.
