After some time, almost all the seats were filled by the audience, both local or foreigners. Too bad, photographing and video-recording were not allowed at all so people could buy the DVD of the show outside the hall once the performance was over.
There were various actions put on display. The balancing acts would include a man balancing plates and bowls on hands, feet and head, while the other one was throwing and catching huge ceramic water containers on his back. Then we saw contortionists who could bend their bodies which normal human beings could definitely not do. The acrobats would be jumping and flying in the air, and a couple who were hanging and swaying around and across the circus ring holding on to each other, or to a piece of cloth hanging from the roof, stole everyone's heart - maybe because of the romantic mood it created. The highlight of the event was the one where six people were riding motorcycles at high speed in a steel globe and the audience were holding their breaths waiting for them to crash with each other and die.

Circus nowadays is full of drama. I like that.
