The history of the circus is a story of destinies.
After the "Le Cirque Plume, l'éternité du saut périlleux" (The Feather Circus, the eternity of the somersault ) section of the exhibition, the "Destinies of the Circus" section pays tribute to the great circus personalities through time thanks to posters, engravings and costumes, musical instruments... An evocation of the art of the circus of the last three centuries up to the circus of today, meeting the famous rope dancer Madame Saqui, the greatest musical clown of the 20th century Grock, the Fratellini trio or the Vesque sisters and their fabulous watercolor drawings of circus shows and artists.
Anything is possible at the circus... the way is clear.
