Check out ChiIL Live Shows' exclusive interview with Vladik, juggler with Cirque du Soleil's Dralion who is also interviewed in print in The Ordinary Acrobat. It was truly a pleasure to chat with the 28 year old who was born into the Moscow Circus. He now combines elements of acro and dance with his juggling routines.

Watch for loads of our original circus content throughout the month of our giveaway. We have video interviews with Cirque Du Soleil performers featured in the book, live show clips we've filmed at CircEsteem Shows, and loads of stills from international touring circuses including Cirque Shanghai, performing on Navy Pier all summer in Chicago, and more!
It was our great pleasure to meet author Duncan Wall at City Winery on his book tour through Chicago this spring. Here are our stills from the reading and we'll have lots of video from that night up in the coming weeks.
Our home base for circus arts, Chicago's own CircEsteem, is also referenced in the book. My kids have studied there for 3 years come fall. The night of the reading, we heard Maribeth Joy, the Executive Director of CircEsteem speak on Circus Philanthropy and saw performances by alum, Will, on diablo. We had to leave before instructor, Brian P. Dailey, gave a juggling demo that night, but we have sweet video footage and stills of him performing with El Circo Cheapo to share instead.
