The Circus Arts Conservatory is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with world-famous “King of the High Wire,” Nik Wallenda. The CAC and Wallenda will present “A Brave New Wonderland,” an extraordinary immersive holiday experience, from November 18 through December 31, 2023, behind (just east of) The Mall at UTC. (The location where “Beyond Van Gogh” took place last year.) Wallenda will produce, direct and headline the show. It is hoped that this collaboration will continue for many years to come.


The CAC and Wallenda will also play a large role in the UTC holiday parade and tree lighting on November 11. Complete “Wonderland” show and ticket information, and the parade/tree lighting details, will be shared in upcoming releases, coming soon.  A Brave New Wonderland” will feature a blend of circus acts, aerial performances, and holiday storytelling, all developed by Wallenda, who will be the start of the show and also producing and directing it!
