The Circus Arts Conservatory (CAC), health and safety and financial considerations have prompted leaders to cancel its upcoming Big Top season, including its Circus Arts Gala and Circus Sarasota 2021, the organization’s most notable international performance program. Also canceled is Cirque des Voix – Circus of the Voices, the annual collaboration of the CAC and Key Chorale. The Gala and Circus Sarasota show are the largest annual income generators for the nonprofit. This will be the first year in its history that Circus Sarasota will not present a winter show. “We share a common feeling of profound disappointment about these necessary cancellations with so many of our colleagues in the arts sector,” said executive vice president and co-founder Dolly Jacobs-Reis. “However, there are still plentiful ways in which people can continue to engage with the circus arts. And we must note that, without Box Office revenues, we need the community’s support more than ever to ensure our impact remains strong.”
