CIRCUS FOLK follows the daily lives of circus performers with the Circus Spectacular circus, as they face the dangerous and nomadic reality of their profession. The show will focus on the struggles of these individuals as they strive to entertain an audience day in and day out. Conflict between family, infighting amongst performers, injuries, and delinquency are just a few examples of the thrilling lives of this unexplored culture. This program will finally expose the performers behind the masks and makeup.
CIRCUS FOLK will also showcase the everyday reality of the decline of circuses. From the outspoken animal activists leading a crusade to close the big top forever, to the lack of childhood enthusiasm, CIRCUS FOLK turns everything we think we know about the circus on its head.
