The audience is welcome to watch the critical moments during which the performance artists are usually preparing in their dressing room. These are intimate moments of quiet and concentration, the moments when they morph into their characters. These are the moments when the performers leave behind their regular identities, shed their everyday lives and become circus artists who have unusual appearances or special skills.
The artists are inviting the audience to enter the back door of the circus, which is usually blocked to them. Viewers are invited to experience, alongside the artists, the intimate and sisyphic transformation they undergo over long and exhausting hours, as they prepare for a show that usually only lasts a few minutes.
