About Street Light Circus
Street Light Circus is a collaboration between artists who seek to build and promote a thriving circus scene in Washington, D.C. They see circus as a mobile and evolving art form that stokes conversation, interaction, and inclusion. Circus is a way to harness not only the skill and talent of a community, but also displays the unique character that makes a place feel like ‘home.’
