On the road with France's Arlette Gruss circus
Issued on: Modified:
The Gruss family, pioneers in the circus world, have been travelling the roads of France and Europe for 35 years. Each performance is a moment of escape and delight for spectators. It's also a tribute to the matriarch, Arlette Gruss, who died back in 2006. Backstage as well as on stage, technicians and artists bring the big top to life, under 2,500 m² of canvas. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover this family-run circus.
