LOCATION: London, Herne Hill, Brockwell, Park, Zippo’s Circus
DESCRIPTION: Zippo’s Circus, Cuban Troupe Acrobats.
As usual, seeing the Circus acts left me feeling very deeply impressed; this group of Cuban acrobats; moved around/over/up/down the bars with tremendous speed/grace/balance/agility.
All the time, I kept on thinking to myself…what if…one of them were to make just ‘one’ mistake, and, all of a sudden, fall…possibly, somebody could either die/or else, get themselves very seriously injured? I realised then that the job of being a circus performer involves putting your ‘life on the line’…just merely in order to ‘entertain’ others. Wow, what guts…!
