Accessible Circus

Omnium® Circus, an inclusive and accessible circus company, will be at the New Victory Theater this month with I’mPossible. It features a diverse cast of contortionists, acrobats, skilled dancers and more with a wide array of abilities and disabilities.

Every performance will incorporate audio description, captioning, sensory-friendly lighting and sound, and a calm environment where movement and vocalization are welcome. The theater will also have fidgets and ear defenders available, a calming corner and an activity area with a live feed of the show if audience members need a break from the excitement.

Additionally, one performance, on April 28, is exclusively sensory-friendly. It’s kept to 60 minutes with no intermission (the other performances are 90 minutes with a short intermission) and the seating capacity of the theater is reduced.

The circus says it’s the only one in the world to be presented in both English and American Sign Language.
