ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- It's the vivacity! It's the velocity! It's Luminocity, the all new show from the Big Apple Circus!

Now in its 36th season, the Big Apple Circus celebrates the vitality of life at the city epicenter, the crossroads of the world! Catch all the verve, the high-spirits and racing-pulse thrills of the world's greatest circus artists in one ring under the intimate Big Top, where no seat is more than 50 feet from ringside!

The Big Apple Circus presents Luminocity in its Atlanta premiere at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park in Alpharetta from Thursday, Jan. 30 through Monday, Feb. 17.

Venture within the hubbub at the heart of Gotham, where the restless tide of humanity rushes through canyons of skyscrapers and shoals of billboards. The dog-walker, whose rowdy pups perform amazing tricks! Businesswomen who arrange to meet, soaring high above on a double trapeze! The rube, a clown-prince among peers, celebrating the mirth of life! Revelry at New Years Eve, with teeter-board acrobats flying like fireworks! and a chic couple of wire-walkers suspended mid-air for the event! The humble repairman, climbing the ladder of his imagination! The mounted policewoman, directing a cavalcade of steeds! The flimflam man with his quicksilver moves! The food cart vendor, juggling his produce! Construction workers assembling athletic poses of incredible strength!

The celebrated Big Apple Circus Band, under the baton of maestro Rob Slowik, provides the lively musical soundtrack, and your cosmopolitan Ringmaster, John Kennedy Kane, will conduct your tour through this luminous cityscape.

Run away and join the Big Apple Circus this season for a dazzling, unforgettable spectacle of wonder, merriment and joy!
