Contemporary circus

Lavers, Katie ; Leroux, Louis Patrick ; Burtt, Jon
New York : Routledge, 2019

In this volume, twenty-four creators come together with three scholars to discuss Contemporary Circus, bridging the divide between practice and theory.

Lavers, Leroux, and Burtt offer conversations across four key themes: Apparatus, Politics, Performers, and New Work. Extensively illustrated with fifty photos of Contemporary Circus productions, and extensively annotated, Contemporary Circus thematically groups and contextualises extracts of conversations to provide a sophisticated and wide-ranging study supported by critical theory.

Of interest to both practitioners and scholars, Contemporary Circus uses the lens of ‘contestation,’ or calling things into question, to provide a portal into ways of seeing today’s circus performance.

Conversations with: Lachlan Binns and Jascha Boyce (Gravity and Other Myths), Tilde Björfors (Cirkus Cirkör), Kim ‘Busty Beatz’ Bowers (Hot Brown Honey), Shana Carroll (The 7 Fingers), David Clarkson (Stalker), Philippe Decouflé (Compagnie DCA), Fez Faanana (Briefs), Mike Finch (Circus Oz), Daniele Finzi Pasca (Compagnia Finzi Pasca), Sean Gandini (Gandini Juggling), Firenza Guidi (ElanFrantoio, NoFit State Circus), Jo Lancaster and Simon Yates (Acrobat), Johann Le Guillerm (Cirque Ici), Yaron Lifschitz (Circa), Chelsea McGuffin (Company 2), Phia Ménard (Compagnie Non Nova), Jennifer Miller (Circus Amok), Adrien Mondot (Compagnie Adrien M and Claire B), Charlotte Mooney and Tina Koch (Ockham’s Razor), Philippe Petit (high wire artist), and Elizabeth Streb (STREB EXTREME ACTION).

Circus life : performing and laboring under America's big top shows, 1830-1920

Childress, Micah D.
Knoxville, Tennessee : University of Tennessee Press, 2018

The nineteenth century saw the American circus move from a reviled and rejected form of entertainment to the “Greatest Show on Earth.” Circus Life by Micah D. Childress looks at this transition from the perspective of the people who owned and worked in circuses and how they responded to the new incentives that rapid industrialization made possible.
The circus has long been a subject of fascination for many, as evidenced by the millions of Americans that have attended circus performances over many decades since 1870, when the circus established itself as a truly unique entertainment enterprise. Yet the few analyses of the circus that do exist have only examined the circus as its own closed microcosm—the “circus family.” Circus Life, on the other hand, places circus employees in the larger context of the history of US workers and corporate America. Focusing on the circus as a business-entertainment venture, Childress pushes the scholarship on circuses to new depths, examining the performers, managers, and laborers’ lives and how the circus evolved as it grew in popularity over time. Beginning with circuses in the antebellum era, Childress examines changes in circuses as gender balances shifted, industrialization influenced the nature of shows, and customers and crowds became increasingly more middle-class.
As a study in sport and social history, Childress’s account demonstrates how the itinerant nature of the circus drew specific types of workers and performers, and how the circus was internally in constant upheaval due to the changing profile of its patrons and a changing economy. [editor summary]

The circus : a visual history

Jacob, Pascal
London, New York : Bloomsbury Visual , 2018

This beautiful book charts the development of the circus as an art form around the world, from antiquity to the present day.

Using over 200 circus related artworks from the French National Library's private collections, celebrated cultural historian Pascal Jacob tells the story of travelling entertainers and their art and trade. From nomadic animal tamers of the Dark Ages to European jugglers and acrobats of the 1800s, from the use of the circus as Soviet propaganda to the 20th-century Chinese performance art renaissance, this is an exhaustive history with a uniquely international scope.

Jacob draws on both rare and famous artworks, including prints dating from the 13th century, and paintings by Picasso and Doré. In doing so he demonstrates the circus to be a visual and physical masterpiece, constantly moving and evolving, and just as exciting an experience for audiences now as it was 1,000 years ago.

Sawdust sisterhood : how circus empowered women

Ward, Steve
Stroud, Angleterre : Fonthill, 2016

Philip Astley first pegged out his circular 'ride' on the banks of the Thames in 1768 and so laid down the foundations of the modern circus. Performing feats of trick riding with his wife Patty Jones, little did he realise that before long women would become a dominant force in the circus. Sawdust Sisterhood explores how the circus empowered women and gave them the opportunity to compete and succeed as performers in their own right in an otherwise masculine world. Drawing upon historical news reports and contemporary interviews, the book explores the lives of female circus performers and focuses upon several of the more well-known artistes from across two centuries of circus, including; Madame Saqui, the renowned French wire-walker of the early nineteenth century; Nellie Chapman, the Victorian 'Lion Queen' of Wombwells's Menagerie and Circus; and Katie Brumbach, otherwise known as Sandwina, perhaps the most famous Strongwoman of the twentieth century. Sawdust Sisterhood acknowledges the role of the female circus performer across the centuries.

As paragons in heir field, these women became rich, famous and powerful despirte the prevailing sexist attitudes of their time. They often had to overcome undue criticism of their work and censure from those who felt their acts were at best inappropritate and at worst immoral. In performing remarkable, often death-defying physical feats, these women subverted the classic ideals of femininity and undoubtedly contributed to the later sexual revolution.

Sawdust sisterhood explores the journeys of these women and their contributions to the advancement of women's rights. Steve Ward, an expert on the circus, draws together various primary sources. newspaper articles, and feministe scholarship to give a full picture of the pivotal role of women in this medium. He also includes interviews with contemporary female performers and over thirty exquisite images. This is a detailed, personal, and deeply moving account of an often overloocked aspect of the struggle for female emancipation. [Editor's summary]

Chocolat : la véritable histoire d'un homme sans nom

Noiriel, Gérard
Montrouge : Bayard, 2016

Gérard Noiriel a été conseiller sur le film, il nous livre là la véritable histoire du clown Chocolat. C'est l'histoire d'un fils d'esclave de Cuba qui fuit son destin jusqu'à Bilbao et, après bien des aventures, finit par débarquer à Paris. Nous sommes en 1886 et les noirs sont si rares dans les rues de la capitale qu'ils sont un signe distinctif pour les nobles qui se promènent avec leurs "nègres". Sur les scènes des cirques qui sont en plein essor, il n'y en a simplement aucun. Chocolat deviendra une étoile des cirques parisiens, notamment pour ses numéros avec Foottit, regardé par les princes européens et loué par la presse. Il mourra dans la misère après avoir tenté de devenir comédien. C'est aussi l'histoire d'une enquête, celle qu'un historien renommé, spécialiste de l'histoire de l'immigration et auteur d'une trentaine d'ouvrages, a commencé il y a une dizaine d'années, pour réhabiliter ce premier artiste noir de la scène française et montrer la résistance dont témoigne son parcours. Car malgré son succès, il y a très peu de traces de Chocolat, enterré dans une fosse commune. Cette biographie est un défi tant les sources ont été difficiles à rassembler. C'est aussi un exercice d'écriture où l'historien n'hésite pas à recourir à la fiction pour combler certains trous dans la vie de son héros, mais toujours en se fondant sur une documentation précise et abondante. Le texte se lit comme un récit, rythmé par les découvertes du chercheur, des extraits du journal qu'il a tenu durant son enquête et des dialogues entre les personnages. La résistance par le rire.

Sur la piste des cirques actuels

Maleval, Martine
Paris : L'Harmattan, 2014

Le « nouveau cirque », le « cirque contemporain », le « cirque actuel », le « cirque de création », les « arts du cirque », autant d’appellations qui tentent de cerner et de rendre compte des intentions, des démarches et des spectacles concrétisés par de nouvelles générations revisitant, sans a priori, les chemins ouverts de cirques différents. Depuis les années 1980, soutenus par des mesures d’aides institutionnelles, des artistes qui s’enracinent dans le paysage culturel et artistique participent à l’histoire de ce genre en se laissant contaminer par
le monde tout en en restituant une vision, c’est-à-dire en faisant œuvre. À partir de quelques problématiques, la constitution du genre et son institutionnalisation, les échappés (les clowns, par exemple), l’approche des nouvelles technologies, le croisement avec les autres arts (la danse et le théâtre), cet ouvrage mêle considérations esthétiques et analyses de spectacles et pointe l’hétérogénéité d’une création plurielle.

Corpo Animali Meraviglie : le arti circensi a Verona tra sette e Novecento

Giarola, Antonio ; Serena, Alessandro
Verone : Edizioni Equilibrando - ANSAC, 2013

Nella Verona del periodo neoclassico gli spettatori avevano a disposizione un vero e proprio menù degli incanti, la cui portata principale consisteva spesso in una compagnia equestre. Poi i virtuosi delle varie discipline del corpo: giocolieri, equilibristi, trapezisti, acrobati e gli spericolati funamboli. Animali ammaestrati, dai rinoceronti alle pulci sapienti. Fenomeni della natura e curiosità etnografiche. Maghi e illusionisti di ogni tipo. Infine un grande assortimento di spettacoli pseudoscientifici come i panorami, o le dimostrazioni della luce elettrica, del telegrafo e le molto amate ascensioni aerostatiche. Il tutto servito in un’inaspettata città scaligera, crogiolo di tendenze, humus di culture, punto di riferimento per compagnie di artisti di ogni genere. Con una serie assai variegata di spazi: dai teatri ufficiali, alle improvvisate baracche, sino all’Arena. È questo il mondo emerso dall’approfondito lavoro di ricerca ed analisi, svolto da un gruppo di titolate ricercatrici, coordinate dai curatori del progetto, le quali hanno setacciato i più importanti archivi di Verona, del Veneto e del Nord Italia, alla ricerca di qualsiasi testimonianza afferente le discipline circensi. Un’esperienza unica nel campo della storiografia dello spettacolo popolare, che ha permesso di riscoprire incredibili repertori, delineare i profili dei principali protagonisti, capire le caratteristiche dei luoghi deputati, delle modalità di fruizione e del relativo riscontro da parte del pubblico e della critica giornalistica.
