David Dimitri L’homme Cirque: One-Man Circus

Just imagine an entire circus show created and performed by one man only! World-renowned Dimitri’s “ONE-MAN CIRCUS” is a sparkling presentation of nouveau cirque, both intimate and compelling, performed in a touring circus tent designed and built specifically for the production.

Lauded “Lord of the Wire” by The New York Times, Dimitri epitomizes innovation as he alone performs an entire circus. In L’homme Cirque (One-Man Circus) he attempts to demonstrate the most daring of all circus performances, combining acrobatics, music, and dance with a stunning finale: exiting the tent on his tight-wire, creating a grand outdoor spectacle as he crosses above at 150 feet “and into the sky.”

David Dimitri is internationally acclaimed for his unique style of tight-wire dancing. Combining an education at the State Academy for Circus Arts in Budapest with intensive dance studies at New York’s renowned Julliard School, David Dimitri has created virtuoso wire dances celebrated at circuses, arts festivals, and concert halls throughout the world. He has been a featured artist at Canada’s Cirque du Soleil, New York’s Big Apple Circus, the Swiss National Circus Knie, and the Metropolitan Opera under the direction of Jean-Pierre Ponelle.

David Dimitri has been a guest artist at such prominent festivals as Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, South Carolina; Lincoln Center Festival, New York; Just pour Rire, Montreal; Jeux de Piste, Strasbourg; and the Avignon Festival. David Dimitri has also performed on Broadway at the New Victory Theater.
