Circus on the Road

By Leonora Gabucio

There are many differences between living on the road and living in a town or city. The biggest one for me is not always being able to see friends and family, being in a different town every day (on the US tour), or every month (on Mexican tours). During tours, you miss birthdays, weddings, and graduations. You can´t go out very often because it´s too late or you are too tired. If you do have the energy and a place to go to, you probably have a rehearsal or early drive to the next town the following morning.

It is quite hard sometimes to hear news from your hometown and not be there to live it. You can easily feel alone without your people around you.

But there is always another side of the coin. One thing you get from being on the road with the same group of people for months on end is a new family. Even if you only just met these people, they become your family. They are the ones you can turn to for help in any situation, or support and advice, even hot cocoa or delicious maté (if they are Argentinian). Whether they are Mexican, Russian, American, German, or any other nationality, even if you have a hard time trying to communicate, you all speak the same language in the end­—union, love, family, community, circus!

You develop all kinds of relationships! We had a trailer neighbor, Moon (Tony the Pony was his artistic name). He knocked on our door with his hooves every morning without fail before morning rehearsals to receive his morning apple and cuddles.

And that, my friends, is priceless. From this union, you can learn anything and everything! It´s like circus and life college!

You can learn how to do a magic trick; how to sew a sequined costume the right way (yes, there is a wrong way); how to tie different knots for different purposes; how to cook the best South American, Asian, and many other typical meals; and how to become friends with tigers, elephants, and camels. Many languages and expressions (human and animal ones) become your own too.

But the most important thing you learn is that this family will always be there with and for you, cheering you on behind the curtain. And you feel them, even when you can´t see them and you know, without having to ask, that they will always be there for you, no matter what.

We invite you to meet our family. Come so we can share the magical winter circus show we have created for you.
