“AFTER CIRCUS” – documentary film – Thursday, April 5
April 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
A life under the big top is hard on the body, tough on relationships and not particularly lucrative. Performers, many born into the craft, do it for one reason and one reason only: a love of the art form. But what happens when your career comes to an end? After Circus explores a passionate and vibrant community of retired and semi-retired circus performers living in Sarasota, Florida. A cast of endearing characters share their former exploits and current challenges with humor… and warmth. Featuring breathtaking performances by renowned circus stars like the inspiring Dolly Jacobs, an aerialist who at 55 defies age and gravity to wow crowds, After Circus is a refreshing look at a tightly knit and supportive group of artists who will always be bound to the spotlight of the circus ring. Seating is limited and a suggested $5 per person donation is encouraged for those who attend. Open to one and all.
