The Circus Harmony troupe had to spend an extra week in Israel when U.S. flights were suspended due to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.
They’ve been stuck in Israel for several weeks, performing with the Galilee Circus, a troupe of Jews and Arabs trying to prove that peace is possible.
With 42 consecutive flips, Sidney Iking Bateman of St. Louis holds the Guinness World Record for most back handsprings by a male.
Be sure to catch a performance of the Galilee Circus and the St. Louis Arches, performing at City Museum and all over the area! It’s an amazing, heart-warming collaboration that’s built lasting friendships between St. Louis kids, Jewish kids and Arab kids.
