Cirque before Cirque

Cirque du Soleil has become a whole thing at this point, but back in the day (1999), it was just a Canadian circus that was doing things a little differently.

It was still in a ring, featured well paced aerial and acrobatic acts, but it was intercut with some weird characters in interesting costumes.

Denis Lacombe performs an absolute clown masterclass conducting the 1812 Overture.

Check it out.
