Press Release

One-Man Circus (L’homme Cirque)

Enter the magical world of David Dimitri. Lauded “Lord of the Wire” by The New York Times, this world famous high wire dancer and veteran of Cirque du Soleil and Big Apple Circus epitomizes innovation as he alone performs an entire circus. Creating what he calls “a unique magic” in the intimate setting of a tent in Burns Park, his L’homme Cirque balances dramatic feats like high wire flips and a human cannon launch with humor, poetry, and serenades on the accordion. It’s as gripping as it is charming—and with grand flourish, be awestruck as he exits the tent on his high wire, crossing above at 150 feet “and into the sky.”

Wednesday, August 24 @ 6:30 pm, Burns Park
Thursday, August 25 @ 6:30 pm, Burns Park
Friday, August 26 @ 6:30 pm, Burns Park
