Storyline

Alexei Krugliakov is serious about being funny. He's studying to become a clown at the State School for Circus and Variety Arts, in Moscow. It's a tough discipline which requires physical fitness and total dedication. In Tsirk, Alexei is our guide to the school, a shabby relic of a vast Soviet circus system instituted to entertain the masses and spread propaganda. While Alexei practises his pratfalls, the committed and underpaid staff remember better, but less free, days. Written by Duncan Bruce
