Tzigane circus
ROMANES

Since 1994, Alexandre Romanes lead the first tzigane circus : The Romanes Circus.

Between his career of lion tamer, luth player, tightrope walker and poet,

he create this community of artists where everyone live together and travel by caravans.

Few steps from « Porte Maillot », this huge family represent a subtil mix of grace, colors, dances, smiles and humor.

Despite it’s international recognition, the circus is today victim of racism and suffer of financials difficulties.

As they say, "If you don't like me anymore, I'll throw myself out the window of the caravan."

The crows are the Gypsies of the sky.
