Summer at the circus…
September 12, 2012 § 7 Comments
Circus Flora plays almost solely to St. Louis crowds. We caught the last show on the last day. It was hot and the circus acts were hotter. Enthralling. No, not the usual word to describe a circus, much less a one huge-tent, one ring, Euro-style circus that annually write scripts to pull all their acts together and marry costumes from one scene to another.
Before the show began under the big top, though, this little performer warmed up by having an icee while stealing floor space near the Snake Man. He might have been her father.
She would come out in the third act, holding hands with the 2-year-old son of Nino, the circus’s feature clown.
Little Pinky here has circus in her aspect and old soul in her face.
