“I think circus is at a terrible crossroads. Traditionalists have got to get out of their minds that animals aren’t ever going to come back – the majority of the public don’t want them any more. And the new circuses are trying to impress each other, not audiences.”
So although he sold off his Moscow and Chinese State Circuses and settled in Somerset to run the Wookey Hole caves tourist attraction, Mr Cottle has decided he must return to his roots.
Een echt en integer circus (als dit bvb.) is in mijn ogen het mooiste wat bestaat. Al is de edele kunst van de clown verdwenen, samen met Charly Rivel of Grock.
