The UniverSoul Circus was established in 1994 by Cedric Walker, an African American man who had a vision of creating a circus with a large percentage of people of color performing. UniverSoul Circus is a highly interactive combination of circus arts, theater, and music. It embraces and celebrates the unique and familiar aspects of urban pop culture globally by bringing them center stage with a cast of international performers that reflect the cultural diversity of the world. Check it out now thru December 8, 2019 in Fairmount Park at 52nd & Parkside Ave (inside the heated Big Top)!
