Cheering, shouting and applauding, along with bright music burst out from a traditional circus tent in Narva-Joesuu, a seaside town in northeastern Estonia.
The circus tent is normal and traditional, but the performers and audiences are special. Yes, it is the Circus Bombastico from Rudersdorf, Germany along with their friends from Estonia pitching their colorful striped tent to hospitalize local Estonian elderly and the disabled.
The whole week they have spent working with handicapped preparing their amazing circus entertainment. And they have had presented their own exclusive circus program to the local kids and adults free of charge.
The artists with and without disabilities whirled around the ring, showed aerial acrobatics, juggling with plates.
The German traveling circus family Bombastico and their Estonian friends are not just casual circus artists, but all of them are professional therapists to work with handicapped.
The Circus Bombastico was established more than 30 years ago, initially founded as a Circus project to offer people away from an active part of their work in a sheltered workshop alive.
And this project was so successful that it came to new tours again and again.
"We want to play together and laugh and we all want each other applaud, not only in the circus, but also in life," said Frederico Bombastico, the circus director.
