If I remember correctly then I know how to juggle since I was 18. Actually I am not spending much time on juggling nowadays but from time to time I pass by at a juggling club in the University near by. From there I know several people who are professional fire jugglers. The other day three groups from there had a performance where I had the chance to take lots of pictures.
I took these pictures on the 18. Carnival of Cultures in Bielefeld. There are every year a lot of beautiful and creative costumes from groups around the region. This year participated 70 groups with around 2000 artists in the procession.
Frankly I can’t remember when I visited a circus the last time. It was surely more than 20 years ago. So I was a little skeptical when I was asked if I would like to visit a show of Circus EigenArt. It is a pretty small circus with no animals. So there is lot’s of jugging, acrobatic and clownery.
But it was really amazing. Due to the small tent I felt like sitting nearly on the stage. The (live) music was very good integrated it the different acts and the shows were awesome.
