Circus Luminous

"One of the most dazzling performances I've ever seen, homegrown or otherwise... (an) intricate, glorious production." -Audience Member letter to the editor, Santa Fe New Mexican

"Entrancing... exhilarating... with its penchant for graceful acrobatics, surreal tricks and subtle drama... like a Santa Fe version of Cirque du Soleil."- Santa Fe Reporter

"We have made [Circus Luminous] a Santa Fe tradition at Thanksgiving! We plan our out of town travel around it, and invite grandparents when they are in town. It is the start of our holiday season. Oh yeah, the show is fabulous: magical, creative, daring, and inspiring with laughter and incredible performances by all. We love you Wise Fool!" -Audience Member
