There’s no animals at the Wanderlust Circus, says Noah Mickens.
There’s no sideshow, either.
“It’s just a lot of human beings with amazing abilities,” said Mickens, who goes by the name William Batty when he’s acting as ringmaster of long-running Portland, Ore., circus troupe.
He and his aerialists, acrobats, jugglers, tribal fusion belly dancers and more are dedicated to “a more human and more intimate form of performance,” Mickens said in a phone interview recently.

Wanderlust Circus will perform on Saturday, July 6, at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts
“Our show is really all about the people and what they can do,” he said.
For instance, there’s the Wanderlust juggling duo, who offer a more complicated form of the art.
Imagine a circus performer lying on his back and circling a barrel on his feat, Mickens said.
Imagine he’s spinning another human, and you have Wanderlust’s style of juggling.
The circus’s acrobats, meanwhile, will combine adagio, acrobatics and cheerleading in an exciting floor routine.
Their aerialist will be performing with hoops and silk in the basic style that’s now familiar to Cirque Du Soleil enthusiasts.
