When Acrobats Hit the Gym

Circus: One Simple Question

The very nature of circus is one simple question: “Would it be possible for me to [insert trick here]?” From this one question comes every skill and every trick. Every time you master a trick you get to ask the question again. For example:

“Would it be possible for me to stand on my hands?”

“Would it be possible for me to stand on one hand?”

“Would it be possible for me to stand on one hand, on your head?”

“Would it be possible for me to stand on one hand, on your head, with you standing on a rola bola?”

Because, for a circus artist, being able to do one trick in the pub isn’t enough. Circus artists keep on pushing themselves into the next trick, the next skill, constantly making it higher, harder and more exciting.
