”It was the best day of 4th grade. We’ve never had so much fun!”
In 2003, almost 15 000 children in various Swedish cities received unexpected visits from Circus Life (Cirkusliv) – a full-day event with escapades and performances for grades 4-6.
”It was funny when the principal got on stage with Mahatma. When he put the forks up his nose”
When Circus Life arrived, the artists and their crew consisting of musicians, a chef, a driver, guests and friends completely took over the schoolyard, the classrooms and the lunchroom. The students helped set up before the show, which took place at the end of the day. The entire circus party made the schoolyard their home for a day, spent the night there and the following morning moved on to the next school.
