2022 Moisture Festival: Opening March 17

Jonathan Rose’s interest in circus arts began in Mexico, where he was a roustabout in a small, family-owned circus. For several months he served as caretaker of the many exotic animals, including Maurice, the elephant and Pepe, the hippopotamus. When he tired of pounding stakes and shoveling animal dung, Jonathan returned to Seattle and began studying aerial acrobatics at the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts (SANCA). He dreams of running away with the circus again, only this time as an aerial artist.
