Circuses are generally a multi-crew production. But here, it’s just one guy. And he manages to do it all. That includes setting up the big top, the lighting rig, and even lighting the fuse before popping into his own dang human cannon. His name is David Dimitri, and his acclaimed 60-minute show is coming to Circus Juventas for the next few weeks. At each show, he will dance, flip, and perform a variety of stunts on a high wire; turn into a human cannonball; serenade audiences with his accordion; and end the show with a no-net, 150-feet high-wire walkout. The son of a legendary clown, Dimitri made his debut at age seven, going on to study circus arts in Budapest and dance at Juilliard, and wowing crowds at Cirque du Soleil and Big Apple Circus.
