There is a section in our piece where the aerial artist is lifted up into the air. It requires everyones strength, trust and focus which helps give the impression of co- operation and a close family relationship within the circus. Much like this image.
Piccolo the Elephant, Bertram Mills Circus, 1951, London. Please, NEVER go to circus that uses performing animals. As cool as these old photos are, the reality for these poor animals is a horror and we should know better in this day and age. Please spread the word!
