Circus Brasilia

Apopa, El Salvador – May 2011

The Circo Brasilia circus belongs to the old-fashioned traveling circuses with a usual mixture of acrobat, clown and comic acts. Due to the general loss of popularity caused by modern forms of entertainment such as movies, TV shows or internet, these small family enterprises balance on the edge of survival. Circuses were pushed away and now they have to set up their shows in more remote villages. The circus art and culture is slowly dying in Latin America.
