If you haven’t been to the Royal Canadian International Circus, you’re in for a treat! There is something so enthralling about watching people with incredible skill and talent complete risky tricks and stunts with such precision. Without a doubt, our favourite part of the show is the daring wheel-walking act performed by the ringmaster, Joseph Dominik Bauer. For those of you who like to sit on the edges of your seats, enthralled by a nail-biting experience seemingly rife with danger and catastrophe, the Wheel of Destiny is going to keep you captivated. Imagine a large spinning steel wheel 20′ in the air then add a real-life daredevil skipping and juggling fire on the OUTSIDE of the spinning ring. It’s a wild and unforgettable act to be sure.

Get ready for your jaw to hit the ground when the Motorcycle Globe takes center stage. Envision a large metal ball – think a human-sized hamster ball – and then add in people roaring around on motorcycles inside the contraption! In between these moments of high-intensity stunts are performers who have learned their craft over many years and in some cases, are part of generational families of performers.
