Street Light Circus is a collaboration of artists that seek to build and promote a thriving circus scene in Washington, D.C. We hope to make circus accessible, as a mobile and evolving art form that stokes conversation, interaction and inclusion. Circus is a way to harness not just the skill and talent of a community, but the unique character that makes someplace feel like 'home.'
