In this week’s ARTery segment, we take a closer look at the Big Apple Circus, founded in the 1970s by Paul Binder and Michael Christensen, two artists who met in a San Franscisco mime troupe.

According to Boston Globe reporter Geoff Edgers, this circus takes us back to the art form’s roots with its cozy and intimate vibe.
