You arrive to New York City, your eyes are bright and your heart is young. You step outside of the train staton and are immediately crushed by the buildings, suffocated by the noise and swept up by the crowds. Panic swells up in your chest – you are utterly alone in a city of 8 million. You have no choice, you breathe it all in.
You trade comfort for chaos. You take unimaginable risks in the name of adventure. What was insane back home is now the norm. You let yourself fall irreversibly in love. You lock lips with the city and it tastes like a familiar poison. You commit to your addiction, letting it destroy everything you thought you were. One day you wake up and realize that you’re home. You have paid your dues and you finally belong in the city built for the fearless, the beautiful and the ambitious.
Set to the epic, sweeping tones of the 20-member This Ambitious Orchestra, Lady Circus flies through the air and dances across your table, swept up in a story that is all too familiar to those who fought to be here.
