The Do Portugal International Circus is an eclectic team comprised of trapeze artists, magicians, jugglers, dancers, clowns, a strongman, and a ringleader to keep the chaos in check. Their daring presentations oscillated between mirth and wonder at a breakmind pace, and the audience had minimal time to recover between the steady waves of gasping and laughter.
Project highlight: The trapeze crew took me up to the trapeze platform for the chance to take some stunning images from their perspective, shortly before pushing me to fly the trapeze myself. It was a thrilling, terrifying experience that renewed my respect for the craft of the traveling performers.
The spirit of the traveling circus lives on in the hearts of Do Portugal's incredible team of performance artists.
