Questão 23:

A Ring Plus a Horse Plus a Comic Character

The modern-day circus was the brain-child of Englishman Philip Astley, who had honed his horsemanship skills in the Seven Years' War, and, upon leaving his military service, decided to make use of his trick riding skills by opening up a riding school in London. By day, Astley taught horsemanship, but in the evening he'd exhibit his own skills and other notable trick riders of the era for an audience.

"Astley's school featured a circular arena that he called a 'circle,' or a 'circus,' which would later be known as a 'ring.' Trick riders had devised the ring some years earlier. Besides allowing the audience to keep sight of the horsemen, the ring proved ideal for generating the centrifugal force that helped trick riders balance when they stood on the backs of their galloping horses," writes Circus Historian Dominique Jando in his book, "Big Apple Circus: 25 years." By 1770, Astley began augmenting his equestrian shows with jugglers, acrobats, ropedancers and clowns, who were meant to entertain the audience between riding tricks. This equation: a ring plus a horse plus a comic character equaled great success for Astley who expanded his business and opened the first Parisian circus in 1782, The Amphitheatre Anglois.

The modern-day circus is a town without a zip code, a traveling menagerie of international performers, artists, animals and vendors who transform empty parking lots or fields − if only for a week or two − into a magical place where trapeze performers defy gravity, nimble jugglers defy logic, and wild animals and their human trainers defy expectations.

But the evolution of this insular community, rife with its own traditions, myths and superstitions, has always been vulnerable to cultural and historical whimsy, having to adapt quickly to the everchanging political and ethical climates that swirl just outside of the tent. To stay afloat for the several centuries that the modern-day circus has been alive, owners and performers have had to continuously adapt to a changing world.
