War circus : charting the lives of the international circus community through The Great War, 1914 & 1918
Dépouillement du document :
A small team of researchers from Circus Central lead by CEO Helen Averley explored what happened to international circus during WW1. The focus of the research has been on tracing individual circus artists and their circuses, and animal through the period of the Great War.
The research was inspired by the discovery of a book by Grock, a famous Swiss clown. More than 3 years later it has culminated in a book which will be available in PDF on this site, as well as in hard copy version in libraries and archives. Contributors include family members of circus artists, researchers, North East emerging artists, as well as forward from Prof. Ron Beadle of Northumbria University. Most of the information has been gathered from public archives including: National Fairground and Circus Archives, T&W Archives, National Archives ( British Newspapers), The World’s Fair newspaper, from published biographies and autobiographies.
