Accident in Circus Arnardo
3 young people were heard yesterday in Circus Arnardo –Norway. The accident happened when one of the plates on the gradin was broken down and the spectators felt 2 metres down to the ground. It is very rare that something like that happens and circus Arnardo will go through all the plates to prevent another accident.
Who is Jimmi Johansson
Jimmi Johansson is performing the Tinker horses in Circus Scott in the current tour. In 1983 he was together with Bengt Kallquist starting up circus Maximum and later he had circus Scala. Jimmi is in family with the Kosowiiks, at the moment touring with the Danish circus Arena
Clowns in Arena 2004
The clowns in Circus Arena Denmark in 2004 season will be the two fantastic brothers – Rossyan. The two brothers Yan and Hector from France are at the moment on the second tour with Circus Maximum in Sweden. There shouldn’t be a third season in Sweden because they will stay in the ring for circus Arena in March.
Rossyans are very famous clowns both as reprise and entrée clowns. They can play almost all instruments and do it extremely well.

I wrote a few days ago, that Casselys Elephants would be in Arena next year. It is correct that Cassely is signed by Benny Berdino but not to circus Arena. Cassely will perform in Circus Skratt in Sweden and later in Circus BonBon in Denmark. Benny Berdino owns Circus Arena in DK. Circus Skratt in Sweden and that’s the reason for the confusion. The Elephant act in Arena in the 2004 season will be once again Sonny Frankello.

Circus Scandinavia in Benneweis with 45 kids.
Circus Scandinavia invited yesterday 45 kids in Circus Benneweis – Copenhagen. They were all very happy and ready to be entertained by Fumagalli and all the other artists in Benneweis. All the kids agreed in, that Fumagalli was the best and he was out after the performance to say hello to them all. He was there for about 15 minnutes because he had to write his autograph on the back of all the tickets and to do a lot of photo sessions with the kids.

Dannebrog Camels out of the grass
The local government in Copenhagen will not allow circus Dannebrogs camels on the lawn in the park. The government says that the camels destroyed a part of the grass last year when Dannebrog was in Copenhagen. Circus Dannebrog has offered to pay for the grass but has been refused.

To all circus and circus friends in the world.
The Danish government are working on a new law for animals in circus. As always it´s a law made for circus only. The Danish government planes to ban elephants and sealions in all Danish circus. The truth for those animals are that they are often treated better than animals in any Zoo. Take a look at the male elephant in Copenhagen when he is in mush – yes here he is tied up for weeks. Please all you people who know anything about circus animals – tell the Danish government that they are wrong, tell that if they love animals then do something about the chicken industry or the horrible transportations for slaughter animals. Don’t always blame the circus for mistreating animals because that is not the truth. Please help and write to the minister of justice email@example.com and tell them that they are wrong
Åbent brev til justits ministeriet.
Det er med stor beklagelse, at såkaldt dyre eksperter har anbefalet og stoppe dispensationer for bla. Elefanter og søløver i Danske cirkus. Begrundelsen skulle være de store afstande dyrene dagligt skal transporteres og de gener og ulemper dyrene pålægges ved disse transporter.
Det er fuldstændigt absurd, at tænke på hvordan vi behandler dyr i mad industrien, burhøns, tremmekalve mm. samt "lovlige" transporter over enorme afstande for slagtekvæg og heste. Det er desværre den almindelige opfattelse (igen), at cirkus ikke er andet en end flok "vilde" der gør alt for cirkus dyr skal have det skidt. Dette er simpelthen ikke korrekt. Elefanter og Søløver har ofte meget bedre forhold, sammenlignet den måde industri dyr bliver behandlet.
De afstande cirkus dyr transporteres i Danmark er meget små, ofte er det under 20 km. Dagligt. Der gøres alt fra cirkus side for, at minimere de gener der er for dyrene ved disse transporter. Stalde er altid det første der stilles op for, at begrænse tiden i bilerne.
Det er korrekt, at det ikke er optimalt liv som cirkus dyr men disse dyr har absolut en mission. Da jeg i sin tid arbejdede på Danmarks Akvarium sagde den daværende direktør og direktør i Verdens natur fonden – Arne Schøitz, at fugle i bur havde den mission, at de skabte en interesse for dyr som var ubetalelig for deres frie brødre. Et sådant synspunkt kan direkte overføres til cirkus, hvor der absolut skabes interesse for dyr og deres levesteder. Hvis ikke vi ser dyrene i virkeligheden, vil vi på sigt miste forholdet til disse dyr.
Transport og træning af f.eks. Rideheste er langt over hvad der er acceptabelt – Her er trænings metoder ofte meget kontante og langt fra de metoder man bruger i cirkus, hvor man for længst har indført belønning og ros. Transport af rideheste er ofte meget lange afstande til stævner i ind og udland. Antallet af konkurrence heste og transporter overstiger i denne branche er langt mere omfattende end i cirkus. Problemet med lovgivning på konkurrence heste –både trænings metoder og transport, er her vil det blive en indgriben i det bedre borgerskabs fritidsinteresser.
Der findes ikke ret mange elefanter i fangenskab i Europa sammenlagt ca. 6-800 individer. (Zoo og Cirkus). Dette tal er kraftigt faldende, da det er meget vanskeligt med parringer i fangenskab, grundet han elefantens temperament. Da det ikke mere er muligt, at købe elefanter vil optrædende elefanter være væk fra cirkus om ca. 50 år. Derfor er der allerede nu, en stor mangel på elefant numre i hele Europa. Dette betyder, at hvis man stopper med dispensationer for disse dyr, vil disse elefanter øjeblikkeligt blive engageret i andre lande f.eks. Tyskland hvor transporttiden er langt mere omfattende end i Danmark. Resultatet med et forbud vil altså umiddelbart ikke være til dyrets bedste.
Langt bedre for alle parter ville være, at der blev udarbejdet nogle regler om transport længde, størrelse af bure mm. Dette skulle gøres i fællesskab med cirkus, Zoologiskehaver, hestesporten , slagtetransport, æg fabrikanter og justitsministerium. Jeg er sikker på, at dette ikke ville være et problem for nogle Danske cirkus, da de allerede har en langt højere standard end de fleste andre kommercielle foretagender i Danmark.

Elephants and Sea lions out of circus.
So called animal specialists, pointed out of the Danish government, has recommended, that elephants and sea lions shall be banned in circus. The reason is the transportation over long distances every day should harm the animals. Circus Benneweis owned by Diana Benneweis agree with the "Specialists" and Circus Dannebrog, Circus Arena – says that it is a stupid idea. The funny part of this suggestion is that horses are not mentioned but the problem here would be that all the nice riding horses used in competitions would be in danger in such a law proposal and that would harm people outside circus.
Spindlers Elephants in Circus Benneweis 2003. Diana Benneweis think it should be illegal but they perform in Benneweis anyway.
This proposal is absolute out of control, when you at the same time can see animals transportations through Europe, with animals without foot or water. The way the foot industry threats the animals with small caves and stables should be banned because that is cruel.
Thunderstorm overturns circus.
A heavy thunderstorm overturned a circus yesterday in Germany. Lots of animals was running away but was cached after a few hours.

The histrical circus Raluy adventure in Norway is over. Lots of trouble with the Norwegian authorities should be the reason for, that Raluy gave up the rest of the tour. Their wagons did not have the legal standard for Norwegian roads and the police orderd police escort if Raluy should drive between the towns. Raluy didn´t follow the law for hanging up posters either. It can be discussed about the law are fair or not but if the Norwegian circus had to follow those laws – Raluy had to do the same.

Lots of trouble for circus Raluy (Spain) in Norway. The Norwegian police wouldn’t let the old historical circus wagons drive alone the Norwegian roads, because the lack of brakes on many of the wagons. This time circus Raluy had to drive more than one time between the cities because the police wouldn’t let them drive with more than one trailer at the time. It wasn’t the first time in Norway that the police escort Raluy but this time it wasn’t for free because they had to pay for the escort.

Former circus artist, former circus friend now painter. Are at the moment working hard to paint his pictures in the Circus Building in Copenhagen. It is extremely sad to read that so called circus friends works for Wallmanns saloons in the name of fast money and fame. No we didn’t see the so called circus friends or heard them in case of the circus place in Copenhagen either. Yes it seems that the circus place will be saved but it isn’t the work of those so called circus friends
Tino is an okay painter and his work can be seen on the Circus Brazil Jack souvenir program from 1996
Eller kanskje jeg heller skulle si: Kondolerer! Her velger man å overlate en bygning av stor kulturhistorisk verdi – Københavns Cirkusbygning – til et svensk restaurantkonsern, Wallmans Salonger. Vekk med alle minner, alle dufter fra storhetstiden i skandinavisk cirkuskunst, inn med biff, rødvin og andre "lekkerier" for gane og mage. Jeg gråter innvendig.
Jeg vet at redaktøren av denne webside ikke liker rykter og baksnakkelser, men vet egentlig dere kjære, blide dansker hva dere får? Hva som vil skje med den ærverdige bygningen?
La meg fortelle hva som skjedde her i Oslo – i en annen ærverdig bygning med historisk brus i veggene: (Vår vakre cirkusbygning ble dessverre jevnet med jorden før siste krig).
På slutten av 1970-tallet kjøpte en meget dyktig italiensk restaurantmann, Gino Valente, de historiske mursteinsbygningene ved Akerselven, midt i Oslo sentrum. Dette var det tidligere Hjula Veveri, bygninger som huset spinderier og veverier på slutten av 1800-tallet og frem til 1920-årene. De fleste ansatte var kvinner – og det var rom nok til mange menneskelige tragedier og litt livslykke iblant. Bygningene, omgivelsene og livet rundt står sentralt i forfatteren Oscar Braatens produksjon, med teaterstykker som "Den store Barnedåpen", "Ungen" osv. Bygningene og miljøet rundt står også sentralt i den norske arbeiderbevegelses historie.
Dessverre forfalt bygningene i samme tempo som den alminnelige norske velferden økte og denne type industri ble lagt ned. (Dette siste skal vi kanskje være glade for).
Med støtte fra Riksantikvaren gikk den før nevnte italiener i gang. Pietetsfullt restaurerte han bygningsmassen, og skapte den om til en stor restaurant med særpreg. Han beholdt mange av de små "avlukker" (avdelinger) – det ble investert i fotokunst fra Hjula Veveris glanstid på veggene, elven med fossefallet utenfor ble rensket opp og lyssatt – det ble en historisk idyll.
Men dessverre også et mareritt for vår italienske venn. (Les: Økonomiske problemer, hjerteinfarkt m.v.)
En periode ble hovedrestauranten omgjort til TV-studio. Fortsatt satt historien i veggene.
Så overtok Wallmanns!
Jeg er ingen flittig restaurantgjest – kanskje dette er grunnen til at jeg reagerte så sterkt da jeg for et år siden fikk mitt første, og hittil eneste, gjensyn med de historiske bygningene.
Borte var atmosfæren. Borte var historien. Borte var bildene fra en svunnen tid. De tidligere intime "avlukkene" er gjort om til sittegrupper for bargjester. Med moderne, vonde stoler. I hovedlokalet var det blitt brede "benkerader" med plass til bord og spisegjester. Servitørene fløy frem og tilbake og skulle liksom være "artister" når det var underholdning fra scenen.
Og hvilken underholdning!
Joda, der var sang, dans – på et helt amatørmessig plan. Der var tryllekunstner, buktaler og jonglør – ingen av disse hadde fått jobb i selv det aller minste skandinaviske sirkus!!!! At maten var kald når vi endelig fikk potetene servert gjorde ikke så mye – jeg betalte jo ikke selv. Men jeg gremmet meg den hele aften over at etablissementet presterte å kalle "prestasjonene" fra scenen for cirkusunderholdning!
Og jeg forlot selskapet så snart jeg kunne av høflighetshensyn overfor mine kolleger - og gikk hjem. Desillusjonert.
(Fra kl. 19.30 – kl. 22.00 var mer enn nok for meg).
Hele stedet oste av profittønsker. (Gi folket nok å spise og drikke så glemmer de resten).
Er det dette man ønsker å gjøre Københavns ærverdige cirkusbygning til? Vil man gravlegge alle gode minner om "altenburgerne" – Altenburg, Benneweis, Mundeling osv.? Og ikke minst: Schumann-familien.
Det må da være en måte å redde denne vakre bygningen på? Om det ikke gives liv for fortsatt cirkusdrift, eller gjestespill, så må det da være mulig å få gjort noe annet. Hva med Cirkus-Museum?
Et Cirkus Arkiv? Cirkus i Danmark har langt sterkere tradisjoner og historie bak seg enn hva vi har her i Norge. Er man ikke interessert i å ta vare på disse kulturhistoriske minnene? Kunne danske cirkus-direksjoner kanskje være med – sammen med den danske stat – på å bevare disse unike minnene på det sted de virkelig hører hjemme – i "Bygningen"…

Circus Raluy have trouble in Oslo. The trip from Luxemburg to Oslo was paid by the Spanish embassy in Oslo but they still have to live by the income. Somebody hasn’t told Raluy that most Norwegian circus only performs in the cities for one day and then moving on to the next. There are absolutely not spectators enough for a one-month visit. The plane is that Raluy will travel to Bergen after the Oslo visit.

New web page from Portugal.
Very nice circus fan web from Portugal has been added to the Link page. For those who immediately claim that they can’t read Portuguese I can tell yon that the page is in English too.

So if you want more information about artists like duo Manducas (circus Krone this summer) or The great clowns Marianis seen last year in Circus Dannebrog and this year in circus Pinder in France.

Circus Arena trouble
Circus Arena did have some trouble in Aarhus with younger kids who didn’t know how to behave. The kids were trying to get into the circus for free and couldn’t find out, to follow normal behaviour. The circus place in Aarhus is not the normal place but in another neighbourhood where there sometimes can be some trouble. Arena are moving to the old place next year.

Circus place in Copenhagen
Now the local government will try one more time to sell the old circus place in Copenhagen. Fist it was the old circus building in the centre of Copenhagen there in the moment are build into a cheap restaurant – for money paid to the government of Copenhagen. But of cause that is not enough now they want to sell the circus place. The place can bring in a lot of money and of cause the government can’t let circus have a place with such value, circus had to be put away where we can’t see them. That’s exactly the problem because the only way for cheap advertising in Copenhagen is to be seen – other possibilities as putting up a lot of posters is not legal in Copenhagen. Funny, because it is legal to put up elections posters.

Visitors on circus Scandinavia
Last week was a new record for circus Scandinavia with 15 thousand visitors. All those people come from all over the world. Here are the countries that visited our web last week:
New link on the artist link page are the Jasters – Crossbows and knife act from Italy. Seen in Scandinavia in 1999 where they were on tour with the Norwegian circus Arnardo. Elena Busnelli and Giacomo Sterza –(The Jasters) are at the moment on tour in Italy with circus Moira Orfei.

Circus Arenas baby sea lions.
The four sea lion babies owned by circus Arena and trained by Addi Pedersen will perform in BonBon land this summer season. What is new is that they will not perform outside as usual but in a tent.
Circus Baldoni reports to circus Scandinavia that their second year on the road goes very well. Director René Marvin are already planning the season for 2004. A new winter quarter is found in Tureby 50 kilometers outside Copenhagen. Lots of space and room for the wagons.
Chinese artists cancel the Circus Princess
The Chinese artists Beijing Acrobatic Troupe are cancelling their visit in Sweden because of SARS. The artists comes from that area in the world with most SARS victims. They are not sick but they will not take the chance. The Beijing Acrobatic Troupe should have competed for the title world Circus Princess in Stockholm next week. The Circus Princess is a performance with only female artists arranged by Henry Bronett Director for The Great circus Scott in Sweden.
On the Danish circus Benneweis news page the web master claims that the sea lions working with Steven Petersen can understand a wide range of different language. He is right and he is wrong because no animals understand the spoken words but they understand your tone, your behaviour and attitude. It makes absolutely no difference about it is Swedish or German. Try with your dog say - SIT and after that say – Setzen sie- same meaning as sit but in German. If you say that to you dog in the same tone and attitude the result will be that the dogs sits. Thats the secret about clever animals.

The German city – Hamburg – has been offering 10.000 Euro for changing the name of the city to Vegeburg. The reason is that the animal organisation – Peta – thinks that people compare the city with foot. The city council in Hamburg considers the offer as foolish.
Peta is a very active animal group in a lot of countries fighting for animal rights. That is absolutely okay but sometime they should consider their ideas if they want to be taken seriously.
Last week Circusscandinavia had 14037 visitors on our page.
This is a new record.
Congratulations to Norway
May 17th is always a special day in Norway because it is there national day. So here from Circus Scandinavia we congratulates Norway.
The famous Spanish museum circus Raluy didn’t have the best start in Norway. Not because of the performance but because of the conditions of some of the circus wagons. The Norwegian police decided to escort the circus caravan and collected all the cars in Drammen west of Oslo. The police will decide how the circus shall continue the rest of the way to Oslo. Circus Raluy visit in Oslo will be in two different places. They will use the ordinary circus place by the Munch Museum but they will also be directly with the city hall in part of the period. How long time Raluy will be in Oslo is very difficult to find out but rumours said that they will stay in Oslo until mid July.
The Performance in Norway are arranged together with the local government in Oslo and the Spanish embassy.
Bad review for Benneweis
Vejle amts folkeblad didn’t like the Benneweis performance much. They say that the whole performance is build up on one single man - Mr. Fumagali. And claims that the performance don’t reach the normal standard for Benneweis. Furthermore they claim that some of the performance is boring. This is the first paper in Denmark given Benneweis a bad review, so maybe it is the journalist there is wrong.
There will be more new circus in Denmark this summer. Yesterday Circus Scandinavia wrote about the visit of Charlie Chaplins daughter and cirque Invisible. But there is more circus of the same kind to come. The Australian performers – Acrobats - will visit Denmark. The Schweiz performance Gopf presenting slapstick humour, dance and acrobatic.

Elephant causes trafic jam
An Elephant from a circus in Philippines went out for a work after a performance in Manila. There is nothing wrong in that but when the work is on the motorway it causes a wide range of trouble. The keepers told the police that jumbo could smell a female elephant and because of that he just went out. The police stopped the Elephant by feeding him bananas.
Circus Krone fans in Scandinavia.
It dosen’t look good for the Scandinavian circus Krone Fans. The biggest circus in Europe will probably not go so far north as last year, where they were with the border to Denmark. If you can’t control your self and you absolutely had to see this fantastic circus it seems that the nearest to Scandinavia is Bremerhaven, where Krone will perform from July 24th until July 27th. Krone is absolutely worth the trip and Circus Scandinavia can absolutely recommend a visit

African elephants are not allowed
For some funny reason it is not allowed circus to perform with African elephants in Norway but only with Indian. In Denmark and Sweden there is an elephant an elephant no matter where it comes from and fully legal to perform. In Finland are both African and Indian elephants illegal to perform.
Hospital clown chocks patient
74 years old male died in Denmark because of chock caused by the local hospital clown. The man has always been afraid of clowns and when the head painted guy jumped out of a closet the old man died of a heart attack. The clown has been employed to raise the atmosphere on the hospital……..

The mayor in Assens – Denmark – Hans Ole Hansen was artist in a few minutes in Circus Dannebrog –Wedensday. Hans Ole was asked to assists the British magician Freddy Anthony with tie up a beautiful circus lady. Hidden behind a curtain a few seconds and the mayor lost his jacket and found it under the ropes on the lady.
Circus Renz Berlin
Police and the political parti – Die Grunen – (The green) will confiscate one of Circus Renz elephants. In their opinion Circus Renz don’t have the necessary papers for the elephant.
How a mouse are going to be an elephant.
A few days ago Circus Scandinavia was writing about a lion keeper tragedy death in a Moscow circus. A few days later the newspapers heard about the attack but now the two lions was eaten up two keepers. In another paper the lions were running around in private gardens scaring local people to death after the keepers was eaten. The truth is that one of the keepers was killed by one of the animals and both lions ran out and was shoot. – But it always sells more papers if you lie a little.
Circus Arena hired.
The big circus Arena is hired for a special performance June 29th in Ringe. Local people are trying to collect money for a new sports arena in the town. The ticket prices will be between 200 and 300 Danish Crowns (26 – 40 Euro). The locals hope that they can collect about 100.000 thousand Crowns (13227 Euro).

4 Musicians from Circus Merano in Norway played an eastern concert in the old Hareid church. Playing eastern morning, 2 polish eastern songs, Schuberts Ave Maria and finished the concert with – What a wonderful world. The artists and the circus workers were of cause invited to the concert.
A famous circus in Germany and unknown in Scandinavia are at the moment in Berlin. Circus Sassasani makes a fantastic performance, with lots of modern music. The performance is named Sensation and for people visiting Arena, Circus BonBon and Skratt in Sweden would have the opportunity to see Argentinian Devils and the reprice clown Mr. Chap again. Sarrasani stays in Berlin until May 18th. Circus Scandinavia recommend Circus fans in Scandinavia to take the trip to Berlin to have a closer look.
One of the greatest clowns ever lived. He died a few years ago in the middle of a circus performance in Germany. Pio died in an age of 77. This wonderful clown could tell a lot of exiting stories about his career if he was still alive. But there is a official web page about Pio and his life. Read here how he felt down into the lion cage under a performance in USA and much more – Here is the link PIO
Vicky and the cats.
For those who saw the television serie from the Danish circus Dannebrog, must remember Vicky with the Cats. It was the girl where the cats run away several times. But there must be a few left because she works for the second year in a row in Circus Wictoria in Sweden.
ACCIDENT at Duo Guerrero
On Monday 23 April during a show at Circus Moira Orfei, Werner Guerrero, acrobat at high wire had a bad accident. He didn't break any bones and the artist is not in so bad conditions, but he remains for some days in hospital. So in these days the wife Aura Cardinali is working alone on the wire. The Duo Guerrero has won 2 Silver Clowns during his career at Monte Carlo Circus Festival.
News from Italy by Dario Duranti
Lion keeper killed.
A lion keeper in a Russian circus was Saturday killed by two lions, when he was feeding the animals. The lions ran out of the cave where the police was forced shoot both animals.
Light in the end of the tunnel
Maybe there is light in the end of the tunnel. When Poland enters the European union, the government and The Danish music union can’t prevent musicians from Poland anymore. And if they do it is illegal says a highly placed official in the government to circus Scandinavia. So maybe we can have real circus orchestras again in all the Danish circus.
The very nice russian barre artists in the 2002 summer tour with Dannebrog are this season performing in Austria with Circus Louis Knie. Like in Dannebrog they performs with two acts.
Tonight there was primiere on Circus Baldoni. Circus Scandinavia was there and viewed Mr. Baldonis second year on the road. You can read everything about the performance and view a lot of nice pictures in the Circus Scandinavia May issue.

The world famous drummer, singer and actor, Phil Collins saw Circus Nock evening performance together with his son April 13th. The Singer says that he was very satisfied with the performance.
Spanish circus in Norway.
The Spanish circus Raluy are visiting Oslo May 19th on the normal circus place – Munch Museum. Circus Raluy is a historic circus with a historic performance in the old fashion style. The wagons are nicely restored and very nice. The prices are cheaper than the Norwegians are used to 220 Nkr. for loge chairs. My circus friend Cor Martens from Holland has seen the circus in Luxemburg and reports that the circus is very very nice and recommend the Norwegian to pay the circus a visit. After a period in Oslo Circus Raluy continues to Bergen on the Norwegian west coast.
In my opinion the best clowns in Scandinavia in the 2002 summer season where they worked in Circus Dannebrog .Denmark. The three Portuguese clowns are now in France on tour with the great Circus Pinder. Marianis do a traditional old fashion clown entrée with the clever white face and the two identical twins.

One camel group is in Circus Finlandia in Findland and the other camels are with Mr. Bengtsson himself in Olympia. One horse group is in Circus Agora in Norway (See review on review page), One Horse group with his daughter in Circus Maximum (Sweden). The last horse group he got is of cause with Olympia – 6 black and white Tinker horses doing it very very well. The horses are very young and Herbert Bengtsson told Circus Scandinavia, that he worked hard with the horses this winter and now you can see the result. If you want to read about the whole performance you have to wait until May the first, where there will be lots of Photos, Video and a big review.

Jonny and Teddy
The two Italian clowns working with Circus Olympia in Sweden for the 2003 summer tour are very funny. Maybe because their family has been clowns in many generations. Their cousin do have a great success in Denmark, where he is travelling as a clown with Circus Benneweis – His name is Fumagalli.

Circus in Copenhagen.
It is very sad to hear that some Swedish circus friends?? Are giving assistance and know how to a foolish project in the circus building – Copenhagen. Further more it is sad to read that the Danish Circus museum is an active part in this crime against circus. I’m sure that the museum needs money but that they were ready to sell their soul is a big surprise. Where is all the real circus friends in this case ? Nobody, with just a little love for circus , would never come near this project. The circus building in Copenhagen is for circus or circus related entertainments, the reason why it is called a circus building.
In my fantasy I always hoped that circus would return to the building some day but now it is to late, the stables got to go and they will build a kitchen for the resturant….and many other new arrangements. But we can still do something because the bigtop are first going to be rebuild and destroyd for good in 2004.
Lets all work hard to throw out this new owner and work for the return of circus in this wonderful old building.
Look here link to a Swedish newspaper
Fumagalli and Glen Nicolodi both with Benneweis on summer tour 2003 can stay together after this summer because they are both signed to Cirque d´hiver in France. Furthermore are the clowns from Circus Maximum in Sweden – Rossyan signed to. A old well known artist the juggler Shirley Dean can also be found in France. The performance primiere is October 23th.
Yesterday Circus Scandinavia
had 1880 guests through our main entrance.
That was a new record for a single day.
Circus BonBon will this year present Daniel Diorio´s Globe of death. This act was touring with Circus Arena in the summer tour 2002. If you are living in Sweden you can see this absolutely sensational act in Circus Skratt for a few month before they move to Denmark. Furthermore will the 6 dromedary, owned by Circus Arena be in bonbon land too. They should have been with Arena this year but for some unknown reason this decision was changed. 6 new horses from circus Arenas stables will be in BonBon and Arenas 4 sea lions will be in BonBon too. As before they will have their own show and this year they will perform in their own tent. The old expert Addi Jepsen trains the sealions.
Catana troupe and the Kosowiiks
Were together in Circus Finlandia last season, now they are both in Circus Arena for the summer tour. The clowns in Finlandia for the 2002 season – José Mitchell are not with them but still in Scandianvia, because they are touring with Circus Arnardo in Norway.

4 totally sold out performances in the weekend were the result for Circus Arena in Copenhagen. Benny Berdinos Circus are very successful and it looks nice for the summer tour in the rest of Denmark..
Director René Marvin from circus Baldoni told circus Scandinavia today that the premiere on Bornholm, A little island south east of Denmark, went very well. The performance gave a very nice review in the local paper. We are looking forward to meet Baldoni in Copenhagen April 25th. For more tour information please go to Ole Simonsens web page www.cirkus-dk.dk where you find opdated tour information for all Danish Circus.
Circus building in Copenhagen.
The circus building in Copenhagen are in these days on its way to be more or less destroyed. Walmanns Saloons are the name of the Swedish company that in these days are tarring apart the building in the name of money. We don’t like the smell of horses said " Hasse Wallman" –the owner of the new resturant so the stables have to go because it is here we want to have the kitchen. . In a few days it is not possible to see circus anymore – in that circus that many older Danes saw circus at least one time a year. World class circus as Schumann, Benneweis and circus Mie was hunted out from this building because the rent was to high and because circus always will be a thorn in any politicians eye.
Any politician with a little respect for culture would never aloud any private restaurant to even come near the building. It is build for circus and a part of the Copenhagen history and it should mainly be used to circus, concerts, boxing or other public arrangement and it should never be rented out to a restaurant.
But most politician don’t like circus and at the moment they are working hard to destroy the small circus place in Copenhagen used for travelling circus. Please let circus have this last place in Copenhagen and don’t sell the ground - we all need some kind of circus. I’m aware that a wide range of politicians work in one but us ordinary people who don’t meet great clowns everyday – please let us keep the opportunity to go in circus a few times every year.
Really understand how to be mentioned in the Danish Papers. How they do it is unknown but Agnete Enoch who has the responsibility for the press in Circus Dannebrog, yes she is really worth her money.
April 12th – they have 2 articles in Vejle Folkeblad.
April 9th. – 3 articles in the same paper.
April 4th - article and yes - Vejle folkeblad.
Fredricia Dagblad 3 articles on one week – 9,10 and April 12th.
Fyns stifttidende April 6th. with two articles.
And I could continue – Maybe the rest of the circus could learn a little because this is nice work.
Circus helping victims.
Circus in Denmark will help the civilians in Iraq and collects Saturday contributions under the performance.
Circus Scandinavia will from January 2004 release a Printed circus Magazine with 6 issues a year. The language will be English. The Magazine will be financed by announces and the Price will be – Nothing – You only had to pay for post and packing. The reason to this magazine is that Circus Scandinavia receives mails and post every day for companies who wants to have adds on "Circus Scandinavia web". I decided for long time ago that "circus Scandinavia web" should be absolutely commercial free, because in my opinion you cant receive money from a company you give a bad review. Because of that fact the "circus Scandinavia web" and "Circus Scandinavia print" will be completely separated.
"Circus Scandinavia print" will have corresponds in Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, Spain, USA, Australia and Canada – people we already have contacts to. But we still needs people in England, Ireland, Findland, Argentina and Russia. So please if you reads this and you are able to write in the following languages Spanish, German or English please contact me on mail : firstname.lastname@example.org - I understand all Scandinavian languages - except Finish – I Speak Spanish, German and English so no excuses for not to write.
We have contacts to a wide range of amusements parks with interest in this project and because of that there will be written about this business to. If you have any comments to this project or if you want to hear more please contact the webmaster on this email: email@example.com

Nice reviews for Circus
Many papers in Jylland write very nice reviews for the 2003 performance by Dannebrog. Dannebrog is the last of the major circus that circus Scandinavia hasn’t seen this year. But in a few days it isn’t the case anymore because Circus Scandiavia travels to Jylland to see the performance.
Diapered lions and Tigers.
The papers in these days have a lot to do, telling the story about those stolen animals in Germany. The story was printed last week; here on this page and Circus Scandinavia can tell that the animals are found a few days ago. The animals are ok and brought to a safe place.
Susanne and Carlos Svenson
In circus big Apple
The famous Swedish horse back riders Susanne and Carlos Svensson are in Circus big Apple –USA –in the Apple circus 25th anniversary tour 2003. Furthermore there is the French reprise clown – Francesco know from several circus in Scandinavia. Katja Schumann from Denmark is in charge of the horses. With that line up the big Apple circus must be a success.
The fakir in the Norwegian circus Zorba, survived the accident Friday, last week. It takes a few months before his ready and that stunt he made is out of his program. I never gone make that trick again –he says. The doctors in Trondheim where he was operated, says that Kim was extremely lucky. A penetrated windpipe and a bursted lunge was the result of the accident. Kim can’t remember so much from the accident but the audience will not immediately forget the performance
Stolen Lions and Tigers
8 lions and 2 Tigers was stolen last week from a German circus. The thief is an 40 years old woman and a 20 year old boy and son of the circus director. The animals and the truck have a value about 100.000 Euro. A few months ago there was a similar problem in Germany when an elephant was stolen and the police couldent find the animal. We hope this time that it goes faster.
The great Elephant man – Kim Benneweis is not with any circus this year. After the break in 1996, with that circus he had been in since he was born, he was a few years with circus Arena. His last season with Arena was in 2001 were he performed with 9 Indian elephants rented by the Italian Togni family. It was a surprise that he wasn’t a part of the Arena 2002 season but he was with the Swedish Circus Scott. Not with elephants but as tent master. This year there is no circus that needs Kim and now he is working with other animals – Fish. Kim is now a trucker, driving with fish from Denmark to Italy and Spain. His brother Miller Benneweis is not in the business either. Who is going to take over Circus Benneweis after director Diana is an unanswered question because her two kids haven’t decided yet about their career. Nadia and Dawid are only with Benneweis in the weekends.

BT gave the performance 4 stars out of 6. Nice performance but it needs unusual entrées and points out the Benneweis performance in 2000 called Clasic and new wave – and the 2001 performance – Super girls – with female artists only as better than this 2003 traditional evening.
Ekstra Bladet another big Danish paper wrote: Benneweis back on the top. And again it is Fumagalli who steals the headlines and the handstand artist Glen Nicolodi is pointed out too. Ekstra Bladet gave 5 out of 6 stars.

Kenny Quinn - Gentleman thief
Kenny Quinn is one of the worlds best honest thiefs and has been working all over the world and in Scandinavia – Circus Merano, Arena, Finlandia – Kenny is so fast that he can steal your glasses without your notice. He has been teaching the police in many countries so they could learn all the tricks and how the criminals works.

Have signed a contract with the reprise Clown Gulio from Uzbekistan. His right name is Guliamov and his a very nice reprise clown. One of the best entrées he makes is the act with the egg legging rooster. It seems like, that Gulio can remote control the egg legging. Another act is where we have to imagine a car and Gulio invites people from the audience for a ride Guliamov makes all the sounds and movements. Last time we saw Guliamov in Scandinavia was in 1999 where he travelled with Circus Olympia in Sweden. For more information about circus Mascot see the Artist in Scandinavia page.

The Spanish clowns in this years Circus Arena 2003 summer tour, Los Sittos, are identical with the clowns from last year where they called themselves Revelinos. I don´t know the reason to the new name and it’s a little strange because Revelinos are very famous clowns and they are completely unknown as Los Sittos.

Anatoli Joukov who was with Circus Arnardo in the 2002 summer tour are now with circus Brazil Jack in Sweden. Mr. Anatoli Joukov does have a very special act. He holds down many litres of aeroplane fuel in his stomach and manage to puke up small portions of fuel into the toch . The act is very different from other fakir acts and very spectacular. Mr. Anatoli dose other more "normal" effects in his show too. Circus Brazil Jack is at the moment in Malmo in the south of Sweden. Circus Scandinavia recommend a visit to Circus Brazil Jack to see this absolutely special act, it takes a few days to forget this Russian Guy. It is not possible to get tour information from Brazil Jack and it is not possible to get any information from their homepage and because of that you had to keep an eye on your local paper.
Read Review from the whole performance in the April issue of circus Scandinavia.
Primiere for Kim Kenneth
Circus Elfi Althoff - Jackobi
Kim Kenneth, the Danish illusionist, is started up the summer tour for circus Althoff Jacobi in Austria. Kim is as always a great success and his positive behaviour and extreme nice performance make him attractive to any circus. Kim is ringmaster as well on this summer tour.

The young and very fantastic juggler Alan Sulc, at the moment with great success in Circus Merano in Norway, will be in Circus Benneweis for the 2004 summer season. Alan was the winner of 800 Euro (first place) in the 2002 Youth circus Festival, a festival for artists of tomorrow. Alan is only 12 years old and do have a talent over the normal seen for his age.
Alan Sulc - In Circus Merano.
At the moment Susanne Berdino, from Circus Arena in Denmark, is training 6 Friser horses for the Circus Skratt summer tour. The same horses can be seen in Circus BonBon in June until August where circus Skratt are closed
Lots of Snow in Norway
Snow and ice gave problems for Circus Merano before the primiere in Frederiksstad in Norway. Ice had to be removed from the circus place and 14 trucks was used to drive away the ice. The Ice on the place was 40 centimeters thick (16 inches).

The Famous Ladder acrobat and brother to the famous Mario Berousek (Maybe the worlds fastest juggler) is in Circus Agora in Norway for the summer 2003. Robert performs of cause with his ladder entré and this year with a juggler entre too. Robert was with the Danish Circus Arena in the 2002 summer tour. His Brother Mario is with Circus Krone in Germany.
Robert Berousek in Arena 2002
Circus Arena tent.
Lots of rumours concerning the new Arena tent was closed for good this evening, because to night Arena raised their new super tent. And what a beauty. The founder of Circus Arena Mr Arne Berdino wouldn’t have believed his own eyes if he could see this wonder – No doubt the greatest tent in Scandinavia. Everything is new and the gradin is much higher than the old one witch means a far better sight from the rear chairs. 1700 chairs only makes Arena to one of the biggest circus in Scandinavia and everybody in Denmark can look forward to a performance where the surroundings is absolutely in top class.
Here are a few absolutely fresh pictures taken in Copenhagen March 13th
The world famous Russian clown Oleg Popov is at the moment on tour with the great Russian state circus in Germany. The Circus is at the moment in Regensburg where they will perform from 13 to Mach 16th and in Nagold from 20 to March 23th.
The antipode act is by Kourbanov making their performance on to big motorcycles where last seen in Scandinavia in 2001 where they was with Circus Arena on their summer tour. Oleg Popov was in Circus Arena in 1999 and with Benneweis 1981 and 1987 both times in the Circus building in Copenhagen
The small but nice circus Madigan are ready for their summer tour. Madigan starts in Malmo Friday March 28th at 18:00. On their Program this year is Jack Scholl Jackson, Paval and Daria from Lethland with a rollerskate entrée. Sebastiam from Hungary with a nice acrobat act.Brandszteter Grzegorz from Poland. Juggler and ladder acrobatic. Felix Quaiser from Germany with horses.
Madigan - Photo by Micke Jackson
The owners of Circus Madigan is Peer Jackson and Manuela Scholl. Manuela Scholl is sister to the very famous Scholl Brothesr that we saw in 1995 and 1996 in Circus Arena (Denmark) and Circus Merano (Norway) in 1998. The Scholl brothers have a very nice Elephant /horse act and the very dangerous wheel of death entrée. (see article below)
Circus Madigan stay in Malmo until Sunday April 6th. (Last day). For further information from Circus Madigan Link are added on the link page.
One more accident
In the Wheel of death
A few weeks ago one of the artists in cirque Massimo (Sweden) hurt himself when he stumbled and felt out of his wheel of death. Now it happened again in the German Circus Flic-Flack where Venelin Peev felt out and hurt himself seriously. The wheel is a very dangerous act and many artists have felt how it is to fly from up to eight meters directly to the ground. In 1996 it was one of the German Scholl brothers there under their act in the Danish Circus Arena broke his leg very very seriously . So maybe it looks easy but is absolutely not without risk.
Circus Dannebrog in Denmark is out with their Summer 2003 program. Lots o f nice artists on the program but unfortunately it seems that we don’t get any circus orchestra this year either. That’s an absolute shame and will in all circumstances drag the performance down into a lower level. Sorry.
In the program:
Mademoiselle Martina – Handstand
Dascal Truppe 9 artists in a swinging rope. A very nice act and the artists second year in Scandinavia, because they were in Swedish Circus Olympia in the 2002 season. Like in Sweden they got two entrées with two different names. Last year they called themselves Dascal and Moldavia troupe. This year the last entrée is changed to Liobas ?
Moldavia changed their name to Liobas
Dascal comes from Moldavia and it seem that Nadja Dascal aren’t going to perform in Vertical sail as she did last year in Olympia.
The Haddies Jr. One of the specialities from the Enoch family – The bicycle act. Last year it was very well performed with almost all family members on the bikes. It is always a pleasure to see the Enoch family in the ring.
Les Parisiennes – Can Can dance.
Isabella and Les Superfemmes – Trapeze. Again this year charming Isabella Enoch. Last year in a comic trapeze act. This year in a new act.
Liberty horses – Normally performed by Haddi Enoch but this year it is another daughter there hasken over the Act. Katja Enoch is in charge of the well-trained Dannebrog horses.
Haddi will not perform this year
Photo By circus Scandinavia
Freddy Anthony – Comic Concert. It is a fact that there is no orchestra, so the hope is that Antonys comic concert will bring music to Dannebrog anyway.
Vicky and Hans Pedersen – Sealions and their companions – Penguins. It is very rare with penguins in circus but here they are 4 birds and four sealions.
Kaselowskis – Camels. As last year Kasalowskis camels.
Josephine Casselly – Elephant act. As last year is is Kasalowskis elephants in the ring, Presented by Josephine Casselly.

Last week Circus Scandinavia had over
That makes us the greatest circuspage on the net in Scandinavia.
The Dane in the fast lane, that’s what there, is written on the letters from Kim Kenneth –Maybe the greatest Magician and illusionist ever from Denmark. Last year in the 2002 summer season he was with Circus Nock in Switzerland and this summer he is going south again to the great OstrichCIRCUS ELFI ALTHOFF-JACOBI. Kim was home in a few weeks and I took a few pictures here in his camper.
When I was there he demonstrated a fantastic visual trick for me. He took a chair and put a lit over it. The cover fits exactly and was shown empty. He turned the whole thing 180 degrees and pulled out the chair but the chair was still upside. After some turnings up and down there are suddenly two chairs. Yes and we are talking about two real chairs. This is impossible. Kim Kenneth told me that the trick is for sale and it is absolutely a masterpiece. The trick includes everything – ready to perform and fits perfectly in a variety show or a similar place. If you are interested in this unique requisite please contact kim on telephone +45 40208931.

KRAFT OG SPENNING
Kveldens spenningsgys besørges av unge, russiske Nathalia Kuznetsova! Når hun svinger seg under cirkuskuppelen i sin singletrapez blir tilskuerne målløse. For maken til de hopp, sprang og saltoer hun utfører så lekende lett og elegant har knapt vært vist i en norsk cirkusmanesje. Legg spesielt merke til hvordan hun henger etter hælene og hvordan hun vrir seg rundt sin egen akse. Utrolig.
MERANOs POPULÆRE MOROMANN
Det hører med til sjeldenhetene at Cirkus Merano reengasjerer artister. Men når det gjelder repriseklovnen Christian Hofer fra Østerrike hersket det ingen tvil: Også i år skal han glede Meranos publikum med nye og elleville påfunn. Vi er overlykkelige for at Christian la økonomistudiene på hylla og fant sin plass i rampelyset.
Madame Marinas hundeshow
GLADE OG MORSOMME BJEFF
Madame Marina kommer fra Det Russiske Statscirkus, og har med seg 10 festlige hunder som hopper tau, leker seg med sykler i flere størrelser og som viser en utrolig hengivenhet overfor sine eiere. I tillegg har hun tatt med en riktig rakkerfant, som tydelig demonstrerer sin egen vilje.
Russiske Igor avløser Don Christian i en original klovne-entré sammen med sin yndlingshund. Et helt spesielt innslag som går rett til hjerterøttene hos tilskuerne.
FULL RULLE PÅ TO HJUL
Verdens mest originale sykkel? Vi kan i hvert fall ikke huske å ha sett maken til doningen den russiske artistfamilien Markevich presenterer i manesjen. Litt knall og fall hører til. Her får vi virkelig mosjonert lattermusklene.
RIVERDANCE OG TENNISBALLER
Han kommer fra Tsjekkia og er yngste aktør i Meranos ensemble. Men det han mangler i alder tar han igjen med en kjapphet og smidighet vi aldri før har sett i Norge. Opptil åtte tennisballer har han i lufta samtidig. Disse jonglerer han i "Øystein Sunde-tempo", til Riverdans-rytmer. I år ble han bestemann i konkurransen "Morgendagens artister". Han vil nok høste flere medaljer med årene.
Folco Althoffs Friserhester
STILIG OG VAKKER DRESSUR
Store, sorte og meget vakre virker de seks hollandske friserhestene nærmest majestetiske når de inntar manesjen . Tyske Adriana Folco Althoff viser tydelig at hun tilhører en av verdens mest dyrekjære cirkusfamilier når hun framfører hestene i Meranos manesje. En nytelse for øyet!
FART, SPENST OG PRESISJON
Ingen tvil om at søsknene Vittorio, Billy og Emilia Arata har cirkus i blodet. De er femte generasjons cirkusartister, og kommer fra Italia. Anført av mamma Carmen, som debuterte som artist bare fire år gammel, viser de oss et forrykende rulleskøytenummer med fart, spenst og presisjon. Familien gjorde stor lykke da de opptrådte for britiske prinsesse Anne på en veldedighetsforestilling til inntekt for Redd
Pablo og Vicky Garcia
ROMFERD ÅR 2003
Spenn sikkerhetsbeltet, legg hodet godt bakover og hold pusten: Her kommer Cirkus Meranos Romfartsprogram. Det britiske ekteparet Garcia tar oss med på en romferd fylt av overraskende innslag og C-momenter. Et meget originalt, spennende og dristig cirkusnummer med artisteri av verdensklasse.
Raskere enn lynet og smidigere enn apekatter entrer de fem akrobatene fra Russland rech-stengene. Her er det saltoer med og uten skru, hopp og sprang i et halsbrekkende tempo. Et teknisk meget krevende artistnummer.
HANDSTAND OG KAUTSJUK
Smidig og myk, men med utrolig styrke i armene presenterer Anastasjia fra Hvite-Russland sitt Chaplininspirerte handstandsnummer kombinert med kautsjukakrobatikk. Et originalt og til tider lyrisk artistnummer framført med respekt for den store mester.
Adriana Folco Althoff med
Familien Folco Althoff representerer to solide artistfamilier som har spesialisert seg på opptrening av dyr, særlig elefanter. Årets tungvekter i Cirkus Merano, indiske Baba, presenteres av Adriana Folco Althoff. Legg merke til det unike samspillet mellom de to, og kjærligheten, hengivenheten og respekten de viser hverandre.

Ingo are going to perform in Circus Arena (Denmark) in the coming summer season. At in the moment he is with the French EduCatif. Ingo and his sealions finish their season in Franch 10th of March. Together with Ingo in France is Jimmi Folco the famous reprise clown who has been travelling with Circus Arena several times. This time is Jimmi not going north together with Ingo because he stays in France.
The Chickys in the summer season with the German Circus Krone
One of the world’s most famous clowns are on their last season. Eugene (Chicky) announced a few weeks ago that the Circus Krone summer tour would be his last. The plan was that Bruno (the white face) would continue together with his wife Patricia but the rumours said that Bruno persuade Eugene to take one more season. The lucky circus where chicky’s perform is Circus EduCatif in France. If you want to read more about the Chicky´s you can find an article in the June issue.
Are ready with a new tent to. It seems that a lot of Danish circus are starting the season in new surroundings because rumours says that Benneweis are in new clothes to. If there should be anybody out there with a circus director in the stomach, there is a great opportunity to be owner of a tent with rooms to 700 spectators. Because Baldoni is selling his old tent for 55.000 Danish Crowns ( 6875 EUR.) The tent is a single layer blue vinyl tent. If you are interested in the tent, please contact Baldoni, you find information on my link page.
The new tent is on it’s way to Arena and should be ready to the coming season starting late in March. Everything is new the gradin, the entrance. The size of the tent is 49 meters one ring with 1700 chairs. The tent is made in Italy.
Circus Dannebrog Winter circus
Circus Dannebrog Winter circus in Odense from 17 February. Presenting the famous clown trio di Lello. The clowns are very famous in Italy and it is not the first time they are with Dannebrog. In 1999 we had the pleasure to enjoy those two funny guys. Juggler Calle Jernstroem from Circus Finlandia in Finland and Sandrine Bové with dogs. Sandrine is from Belgium. The performance is running in Rosengaardscenter in Odense .
A Bengal tiger traveling with the Universal Circus escaped yesterday from the circus in Florida. The tiger named Chad got away while he was being transferred from one cage to another.
The tiger was only on the loose in a few minutes and was captured before he made more than 100 meters from his cage. Circus officials say they have taken steps to make sure that more of their big cats has the chance to get out again
The amount of Elephants in capture in Europe is 850. - 560 Elephants are living in Zoo’s and 290 are living in Circus. In the future the amount of elephants are expected to decrease in the future, both in circus and Zoo’s
Where are they?
Sometimes there are artists and circus people that just disappear. There are of cause many reasons, like diseases, going on pension, moving to other countries or like Phillip Schumann , son of the famous horse trainer and circus director Max Schumann, he just disappeared when his fathers circus was closing in 1982. At the time from 1977 to 1982 Phillip was in charge of the transportation sector and was active in the ring to. When one of most important circus in the last decades was forced to close, Phillip didn’t continue his career with another Circus. Katje Schumann, Phillips Sister, continued and moved to USA, where she is running the great Circus BIG APPLE together with her husband. Phillip went to a civilian job and became a commercial manager and later he went back to the horses again on a horse race track in Jylland. Today Phillip is working in the Hospital business and lives in Lund.
Accident in Circus Massimo
A serious accident happened in Circus Massimos premiere, Wednesday. The artist troupe "Torres" who performs with the very dangerous act - the wheel of death. One of the artists lost his grip and felt to the ground from a height of 4 Metres. The artist felt straight on his head and was laying without any movements between the first row and the ring. The Director – Robert Bronett asked the spectators to leave the tent but later he could announce that the artist was conscious and was able to talk to his surroundings. After the ambulance had picked up the wounded artist the performance continued.

New circus place in Copenhagen.
As written in 2002, there are rumours concerning plans for closing down the circus place in Copenhagen. And the rumours are true it is the plan to sell the place after Circus Arena are finish with their premiere in Copenhagen in April, says the park department to Circus Scandinavia. Where circus shall be in the future when they visit the capital in Denmark are in the moment unknown but different suggestions as Valbypark has been pointed out. This new proposal is once again a proof, that traditional circus is discriminated. When the "finer" -Circus De soleil was in Copenhagen, there was nothing wrong in give them one of the best places in the Danish Capital. But okay when ministers and other nice people are going in circus it would be a disaster if they got their shoes wet.

Run Away circus director
A German circus director is wanted by the police because he couldn’t treat his animals well. That’s not funny but the funny part comes here, because the German director took an Elephant with him when he ran away. The German police thinks they get the director soon…….

Snow chaos for winter circus.The German Circus Barellis tent couldn’t hold back the enormous snow chaos in Nurnberg in south Germany. The whole thing broke down under the weight and two camels and a few circus workers were buried under the snow. Animals and workers were rescued and are okay.
In their new designed web, they have made a nice web store with lots of merchandise for collectors. They got a very nice range of videos from the early 90’s to the 2002 performance, souvenir programmes from the last 10 years, t-shirts, posters and much more. Circus Olympia deliver world wide if you pay in advance (outside Sweden). Unfortunately the web is written in Swedish only (mostly) so if you cant understand Swedish and would like to buy some of those nice circus stuff, please let me know and Circus Scandinavia will be more than happy to guide you through.
Normally circus Merano (Norway) are the first circus on the road in Scandinavia but lots of snow this winter will probably postpone the premiere there should be in Frederiksstad March the first.

Some television viewers in the Scandinavian countries maybe wonder what the Cuban bar artists "Los Paiffers" did in the Scott 2002 television broadcast. Los Paiffers was with the Swedish circus Maximum on their summer 2002 tour…The explanation is that Maximums summer tour finished in late September and the Scotts recording was immediately after in Stockholm. The Bronett brothers didn’t mean that the riding School act (spectators had to stand up on a horse for one round in the ring), was fitting in the show and decided to sign Los Paiffers for one performance to replace the missing act.
The great Italian Clown Fumagalli are going to travel with the Danish circus Benneweis on their 2003 summer tour. In the 2002 summer season it was the Swedish people who had the pleasure to be intertaint be this great clown in Circus Scott.
