In 1890 the painter George Seurat visited the circus.
He spent the last 18 months of his life trying to capture the experience on canvas.
Inspired by Seurat’s innovative color theories, the artists of RGBNYC and the aerialists of Constellation Moving Company have come together to explore and expand on his final painting, ‘The Circus.’
We follow his race against time to weave meaning out of color and light, pulled between desires for human connection and an elusive visual quest, glimpsing another possible world outside the conventional boundaries of society.
