Big Apple Circus presents Circus of the Senses specially adapted performances of The Grand Tour at Lincoln Center

On Wednesday, October 28, and Thursday, October 29, at 11 a.m., the Big Apple Circus presents Circus of the Senses, specially adapted performances that enable children and adults with vision or hearing impairments and other disabilities to experience the joy and wonder of the circus. A "touch session" after the performances offers a unique opportunity for pre-selected groups of visually impaired children to go into the ring to meet the artists and literally feel a clown nose, a juggler's clubs, or the silky coat of a performing dog.

Tickets for Circus of the Senses are $12.50 ($10 for groups of 10 or more). To get tickets, please visit to fill out a ticket application form. Please note that submitting the ticket application form does not guarantee tickets. Tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis to eligible groups. Priority is given to children with vision and hearing impairments and their chaperones.

There will be an evening performance of the full show on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 6:30pm, at which audio headsets, Braille descriptive programs, and American Sign Language interpreters will also be offered. Tickets to the Wednesday evening performance are available at

Circus of the Senses is also offered at performances in Queens and Boston.
