Mika Hulahoop performs at ZirCouplet in Berlin

I never went to circus until my daughter became old enough to merit a visit. Since then I have been a great fan. There is something distinctly old fashioned and enchanting in the passion and skill of the artists. No hi-tec, no touch-screens, no keyboards. Just endless hours of practice and a love to perform. At best, it gives an excitement for the audience which is very different from the “wow” of say, Avatar. The latter is no doubt impressive, but in the end you know the animated character cannot fall from the tree. A circus performer can fail and there is a huge difference. ZirCouplet is one of many outfits in Berlin, truly a great city for performing arts.¬†Click image for more.
