Pop-Up Circus by Nimble Arts

Nimble Arts will be performing circus vignettes at Jacob’s Pillow, sharing a variety of circus artistry in the air and on the ground. Founded by identical twin aerialists Elsie Smith & Serenity Smith Forchion, the ensemble troupe of performers brings vaudevillian fun, emotive physicality, and astonishing human capacity to their work.
