Clowning Around City Campus
From the you-never-know-what-you're-gonna-see-around-campus department, we present Bello Nock:
And you thought YOUR job required walking a tightrope and keeping a lot of things in balance? Check out the latest visitor to the neighborhood around our city campus!
Bello Nock came to town yesterday, to help trump up some attention for his upcoming three circus performances at our neighbor, the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. Photos courtesy and copyright John F. Tremblay.
Dozens of our students wandered over to the front of the LMA to see what the buzz was, when the star of the show took to the highwire for an entertaining balancing act, all without the benefit of a net below him!
The circus' Defying Gravity Tour will be in at the auditorium on Saturday October 29 for two shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and on Sunday, October, 30, for a 1 p.m. show. For more information, contact our friends at the Auditorium at 978-454-2299.
The circus act includes high wire acts, bungees, trampolines, and trapeze work, and is supposed to be a huge crowd pleaser, especially for the little ones.
A seventh generation performer, Bello Nock hails from a family of daredevils, ballerinas, equestrians, and opera singers. His credits include the prestigious Big Apple Circus and eight years with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey. Bello was inducted into the “Circus Ring of Fame” in 2009, the youngest person ever to receive such an honor.
Before he headed out of town, the gravity-guru threw his heart out to all his local fans! Guess this is what happens when you've got a campus right in the heart of a big city - You never know what kind of high-jinks to expect!
