Report from Polo Circo
I was just on a family vacation in Argentina, and noted with dismay that a circus festival started the week after I left. Â WEBSITE: Â http://www.festivalpolocirco.gov.ar/
When I was unmarried and child-less, I might have stayed for the week and changed my ticket, but my responsibilities as a husband and father made that impossible. Â Fortunately, my brother lives in Buenos Aires, and agreed to go to a performance and report back.
There are many shows going on– my brother caught one.
Review/notes by clownlink.com’s South American correspondent
“Los 2 play”, from spain
1530 performance, may 1, approx 400 attendees, tickets were 35 pesos (us8
2 guys, 2 girls, acrobats w 1 of the females as aÂ clown character, messing up the routine, spilling the chalk, fumbling andÂ bumbling
Pretty good acrobats, clown routines were also funny – kids in the audienceÂ definitely responded well, as well as adults. Â They were there to beÂ entertained and were.
Short set, 45 min total w 2 curtain calls – entertaining for generalÂ audience but nothing spectacular.
