The circus “Banzay” performs in the Crimea towns and represents a practically extinct phenomenon that is called “shapito” ( a constantly moving circus).

Who didn’t like going to a circus while being a child? How many hopes and happiness this event brought to our hearts! Fortunately, nowadays children still love coming here and laughing at clowns and performing animals.

Few people think about all efforts and hard work put by circus actors to create a performance. Somebody pities poor animals for sitting in cages, but actors are also having a real rough.

The life of regular movements is a severe trial. Actors have to solve millions of bureaucratic questions to arrange performances in a town.

As to animals, they are always inoculated in time and kept according to the certain rules.

There no problems with ads in small towns. Visitors are especially numerous in winter, when the shapito comes to the Crimea resorts.

Many circus performers trip with their families. Parents are trainers, children learn the trade by training special “children’s” animals.

All the programme is perfectly worked out and learnt by heart. However, some actors can improvise.

Usually three rehearsals are held before a performance.

Some people go to a cloister in order to avoid problems of everyday life, and Yuri came to a circus. Here he doesn’t laught at himself, but bring happiness to visitors, especially to young ones.

  1. I think a better alternative is to take children to a state/provincial/national park. Educate them that we are part of nature, not it’s master (caged animals=exploitation). They’ll have plenty of fun climbing trees, hills, etc. But I know this is bringing entertainment to the working classes who may not have the resources to travel (in other words, underpaid by the industrialists). Just leave out the exploited animals.

  2. UGH-I hate to see animals in a circus-especially big cats- all the hair being rubbed off her nose CAN’T be healthy!

  3. Last pic: Some go to a cloister to avoid everyday problems, some (Yuri) join a circus, some of us (me) “light out for the territories.”

  4. The circus is evolving into performers. Less animals are being used for various reasons. Cirque du Soleil and it’s other varieties use no animals. The circus can still be an amazing place for young and old. Even the performers love their work for what they receive. All they need is to feel appreciated.
