Sini on Fear and Risk in Circus

What it's like to work on new tricks

 
 
Circus is an incredibly vast field with many different styles, aesthetics, and influences. But one element that appears again and again - and which is the reason so many people like to watch circus performances in the first place - is the thrill of it all.
 
Testing limits is an integral part of circus. For acrobats like Sini this means a continuous encounter with risk and the fear of failure, but also self-confidence. It's a long way before a trick is actually performed on stage. We asked Sini to describe what this way feels like.
