Rotterdam Circusstad 2024

The Circusstad Gala was a two hour show that really knocked my socks off. It had a great series of unbelievable acts. Just look at the pictures above: Shu Takada 6 times world champion in Yo-Yo, Lisa Rinne with her trapeze act (wow), Glorious Bodies, Diane Salles (aerial, tissue), Tay Lane & Laura Stokes (hair …

Show for Liberation Day in Venlo
