Once upon a time, a magical spell was cast over us when we looked at the huge and colourful Circus Posters on Billboards, TV spots and Commercials of daring young circus performers.
 
In the new age of social media, a magical spell was cast over Tianjin just last month, by well-worded wechat moments complete with high resolution images, intriguing GIFs and short video clips of the flying trapeze followed by tons of thundering performing circus animals and the illusion of the wafting aromas of freshly cooked popcorn, sawdust, and circus tents.

Tianjin was fortunate to be greeted with its animated crew and the numerous animals, the trapeze and its artists, the high wire and its tightrope walkers, the motorcycles and the daredevils. 
 
Arrival of the circus meant the opportunity for many a child to watch the circus acrobats, those funny old circus clowns, and circus performers under the circus tent for a once in a lifetime experience. It almost seems as if it has become archaic in an age wherein video games and cell phone screens compete to provide childhood wonder. In this digital age when you can stream everything, it is magnificent to have the real, live human element once in a while. The circus is the ultimate experience, it is a rare treat: real, live and spectacular. Circus is a hybrid art - it is ballet, dance, musical theatre, gymnastics, narrative storytelling, and performance art, everything rolled into one. You can enter as a ballet fan and leave as a musical theatre fan, too. It’s ideal because it’s all ages, all budgets, and all cultures. It’s one of the most equalizing genres. The circus is the only thing that makes people roar!

Teams of horses, large tawny-coloured cats, tractors, and trucks all pulled wagon after wagon off the circus locomotives. The Vintage circus brought numerous workers from all parts of the world - circus performers, musicians, circus animals, and management staff - to make those three days in our town the most fantastic to remember for a very long time.
 
Inside, the massive theatre resembling the usual flapping tents of canvas consisted of mysteries of the world that had only been read about in books or magazines but had never been seen in person before. The strange, odd, and curious from around the world were there for all to see. Girls allowing objects to pass right through their bodies, disappearing acts, cyr wheelers, contortionists, cloud swingers, lion taming, natural oddities, and magical illusions were here for three glorious days.

Inside the huge travelling zoo or menagerie were exotic animals from different parts of the world as well as right here at home. Lions, tigers, monkeys, canines, and circus horses were practically expected when the Circus came to town. 
 
The show commenced with a fine circus parade through the auditorium with glamorous show girls finely costumed, horsemanship, the limber circus acrobats, all acting as the Pied Piper to perform in the Circus. The beautiful spectacles as they paraded around showed many finely costumed circus performers and Circus themes.

Once the performance began the thrill and pure terror of seeing one man facing the lions and tigers was amazing and was full of fun, action, and excitement. It felt like we had time travelled back to 1903. It's as if we were attending a circus in the golden age of the yesteryears. The MC was a delight. She brought the audience on stage to participate, and the result was some great semi-improvisational comedy. We were either laughing hysterically or in total awe of the performances. The crowd seemed buoyed by the frivolity of the clowns, and the way that a triple flip from the tightropes by an extravagantly clad fit man made anything seem possible. 
 
For some, hope bubbled anew with each big clash of the cymbals. Sadness seemed to be banished after each of the nine performances in total, which were given consecutively in between small breaks throughout the three days.

As the show finally ended, the backstage crew members, the animal handlers, the performers’ small children joined the performers on the arena floor, standing with the costumed dancers. But before that, the people in the crowd rose to their feet for a prolonged ovation. 
 
The company was amazing and preserved the memories of the circus from long ago to keeping us going to the only form of clean family entertainment today that is over 200 years old.
