Nipton, Mojave Desert, California

What if an audacious circus company purchased a small town in the middle of the Mojave Desert? A living town where performers and artisans can retreat to dream and create? A place to tell stories around the campfire? A place to dine under the stars and wake up to a panoramic view of the mountains? As new caretakers of this circus-oasis in the desert, Spiegelworld will be writing the next chapter of Nipton’s centuries-old story. Will you be in it? We can’t wait to see what happens.
