Special homepage.

When I’m surfing on the net for circus related pages I sometimes find sites where you ask yourself "What is this?" A Swedish Magician called TOLEDO makes one of those sites where you put up the question "What is the idea?" On his page News/Gossip almost every thing is a private crusade against circus Scott in Sweden. He is using every possible chance to write bad things about this Swedish circus. He is writing about financial problems, how they break the law and every possible chance to write something bad.

He claims to be an artist himself? But who will employ this guy? And if you take the chance please don’t tell this guy anything about your financial status.

But anyway take a look for yourself here is the link:

Monte Carlo Circus Festival 2004

Maybe the finest circus festival in the world will take place in February 2004. Not much is released yet but Circus Scandinavia knows that the two fantastic brothers Maycol and Guido Errani will be a part of this event. Circus Scandinavia saw this ikarian act this summer in Italy and I can guarantee that this is absolutely world class. I was very impressed by those two brothers normally working in Circus Errani and I have never seen an act like this, done in such a high level before.
