welcome to the cirus

Let the show begin!

THE BIGGEST SHOW!

The circus is the oldest show in the world. For 3,000 years, masters of juggling, contortionism, and balance have been found in places such as China, Greece, India, and Egypt.However, the idea of the circus did not start to take shape until the Middle Ages, when performers began going from village to village showing off their skills as a way of earning a living.

The modern circus was created by Philip Astley, who, after opening the first show in London starting with horsemen and peculiar forms of riding (and later including acrobats, jugglers, rope balancers and clowns) established himself in Paris.After their time in Paris, the permanent circus began to establish itself in all major cities of Europe, until reaching the USA, where the first street circuses were inaugurated.

HOW ARE YOU?

It was in the USA that a new model of the traveling circus was created, different from the European kind, which was characterized by its tents and a large collection of wild animals that acted in the show along with the human performers.
