I stumbled across this new-ish form of circus act today, Roue Cyr, and it’s way cool.
I came across mention of it in an article about Gypsy band Doch doing a show with circus performers at Brisbane Powerhouse. We caught Doch at the Woodford Folk Festival and they were pretty darn exciting. Add in some gymnastics and whatever else, and it would make for an interesting show.
At last year’s Woodford, I was blown away by another Gypsy-style band, The Counterfeit Gypsies. Worth checking out!
