Like museums, concert halls and other cultural venues, circuses have been at a standstill since the end of October due to the health crisis. How is this period of forced inactivity going for Alexandro Klising and his family, who usually give workshops in schools across Brittany? We went to meet them in Plémet, near Loudéac (22).

Friday and last Saturday, this Circassian family chose to erect, at home, its marquee, to be able to repeat their numbers again. A great moment of emotion for these artists eager to find the applause and the smiles of the children.

For three months, the Klising family has resided in Plémet on their own land including a hangar. “The girls continue to train a bit in the trailer and the building, in the evenings after school and work. They warm up and relax ”. (Lionel Le Saux / The Telegram)

“It balances the heart”, rejoices Alexandra, seeing their large marquee take shape. Since the start of the health crisis, these circus artists have been doing odd jobs in order to be able to eat: work in the slaughterhouse, in the laundry, resale of scrap metal… (Lionel Le Saux / Le Télégramme)

” It feels good ! », Exclaims with a big smile the young Fallone, perched in the air on her trapeze. The young 11-year-old artist is reveling in the joy of training in her beautiful blue setting. The two sisters have not lost much of their agility and flexibility. (Lionel Le Saux / The Telegram)

The camels, the llamas and the pony return to the shelter in the evening, after having frolicked in a pasture during the day. “The animals have behaved differently since we’ve been here,” says Alexandro.
