On October 24, as part of the Next Wave Festival, CN National Director Duncan Wall gave a talk on the rise of contemporary circus and the state of the art today at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). The venue was beautiful, located in downtown Brooklyn, as part of their new BAM Fischer Building. AM is one of the most progressive and influential theatres in America, and a champion of contemporary circus work.

Around 60 people attend the presentation with more showing up to mingle after the American premiere of Hans was Heiri by Swiss circus innovators, Zimmermann & de Perrot. Attendees included members of the general public and the NYC circus community.

We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone at BAM and all those who made this event possible.
