Circus's last days

For the past few weeks all the attention has been on the Boom a Ring circus coming to Coney Island, but for years, Brooklynites have been entertained on another waterfront.

CIRCUSundays at The Waterfront Museum in Red Hook, New York’s acclaimed little big top by the sea, celebrates 13 seasons this year, and this year's comes to a close June 28 with performances at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

This Sunday show is European intimate circus at its most breathtaking, as it brings David & Paris, a tip top magician and a hip-hop juggler; veterans of Las Vegas resorts and the Apollo Theater in Harlem.

Also on the bill is Li Liu, award-winning acrobat from Chinese National Circus and Ringling Bros. who presents a dazzling Risley act and her signature one-armed hand balancing.

Also catch Hilary Chaplain, Brooklyn’s Clownesse. Out of each well-choreographed cacophony of chaos, she steps lithely like a ballerina. Joshua Dean offers aerial artistry, which has earned him accolades throughout the country.

The Waterfront Museum is located at 290 Conover Street, across the street from the Fairway Market in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Tickets are $14, $10 for kids (under age two are free); $18 and $12 at the door.
