Film Debut: “Runaway Circus” at Nyack Center


from: nyacknewsandviews.com

Feb 10,2012

See the story of 12 teenagers who “run away to the circus” and join Nyack’s Amazing Grace Circus in this short documentary by film maker Angela Snow on Wed Feb 15 at 7p in the Nyack Center. Behind the tent in the scorching sun and humidity, the teenagers learn the extreme physical skill and dedication required to put on a show. After the nerves and butterflies, they will experience for the first time, what the other performers speak of, that shinning moment in the ring. Overcoming every hurdle imaginable, from all different backgrounds, ages, and cultures, Circus performers unite under a little big top to capture the imagination of young and old.
Runaway Circus documents AGC!’s ‘Circus-in-the-Park Extravaganza’ during the summer of 2009. The film has been accepted by two international film festivals. The world premier of Runaway Circus is also a fundraiser for The Amazing Grace Circus.
Meet filmmaker Angela Snow, editor Tomoko Kamimoto and see the AGC! Youth Troupe perform. Circus Art by Karen E. Gersch, video montage by Deborah Grosmark. Also appearing: Guest Artist Kenneth Lindemann from Montreal-based ’7 Fingers’ circus troupe performing his specialty handstand act.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children. Light food/drinks are included for this alcohol free event. Tickets are $35 at the door. Reserve your place for this limited seating event by email, online or by calling 845-348-8740.
