Scope and Contents:
Claudia Telliho (presenter); Sarah Chapman This meal fuels the performance. Circus performers need to eat a big, hearty meal to stay healthy and get energized for the show. Come learn about how the performers prepare for the stage. After all, the circus travels on its stomach. Sarah Chapman joined Sailor Circus in Sarasota, Florida, at age twelve and has performed aerial acts for twenty years. She has since written and published four circus-themed cookbooks and a memoir.
