The Sakha Circus: Reindeer, Huskies, Wrestlers…

Yesterday I and my family went to the circus. As compared with my little sons, I hadn’t any illusions. I had being expected to see ordinary clowns and ponies, and young jugglers and acrobats, who graduated from the Beijing circus school. That was what I had seen five years ago in the Sakha circus known as the most northern. Before taking kids to the circus, however, I wondered how Yakutian circus artists were able to earn many international awards, including a few in Monte Carlo, and how they managed to sign contracts on tours across Europe and the North America.

I missed one thing. Yes, they acquired education and skills in famous Moscow and Beijing schools. But… they take all advantages of the exotic Yakutia, the most coldest, culture-rich Siberian region. Just take a look at a few photographs I took in the course of the show.

Reindeer stunned me much. They did almost all things horses tend to do.

Siberian huskies were very funny, joyful, lively, clever and obedient

Young ladies, jugglers as well as acrobats disappointed me a little. Though they were dressed in national costumes, they delivered traditions of the Chinese circus.

A classic wrestlers’ struggle performed by one person delighted me. It was like a funny fight between Chukchi fishermen.
