About the Show

Omnium (Latin for “of all and belonging to all”) ensures everyone is in on the action in a spirited spectacular that is both limit-defying and life-affirming. Join the circus with young Dani as she finds herself among an awe-inspiring, inclusive ensemble featuring an award-winning gymnast who uses a wheelchair, an aerialist born without legs, a Deaf storyteller and many more. Accessible to all, every performance incorporates American Sign Language, audio description, sensory-friendly lighting and sound, and a relaxed environment where movement and vocalization are welcome. Experience the I’mPossible in this exuberant big top extravaganza!

No limits, no boundaries, no barriers

Things to Know

  1. A relaxed environment at every performance means you can express your joy and astonishment however you like. We’ll have fidgets and ear defenders available, and a calming corner and activity area downstairs with a live feed of the show if you need a break. A separate Sensory-Friendly performance on April 19 at 11am features reduced seating capacity.
  2. 25% of Americans have disabilities, and over 25% of Omnium’s artists, staff and board are disabled. That’s why Omnium is known as “The World’s Most Inclusive Circus.”
  3. Circus is a family affair! Omnium’s ensemble includes members of the España family, who have been performing in circuses for six generations, as well as clowning couple Dick Monday and Tiffany Riley.

About the Artists

One of the brightest things to come out of 2020 was the debut of Omnium Circus, a long-held dream project for Lisa B. Lewis, who co-founded the Super Scientific Circus and spent many years working with the Big Apple Circus. Omnium features a multi-talented, multi-racial cast with and without disabilities in a show that is leading a global movement for systemic change in family entertainment.
