Watch Now

Created during ETHEL’s developmental residency at The Ringling, Circus: Wandering City explores and honors the complex relationship between circus troupes, their performers, and the audiences they inspired. Combining original music composed by the New York-based string quartet with projected images, films, and interviews mined from The Ringling Archives, ETHEL created a multimedia stage work that is both big-hearted and clear-eyed about the scintillating and debilitating sides of the circus industry and the passion and dedication of its community.
