Video of the Week – Monkey & Goat

At the Circus Open Space there was a great topic of conversation suggested by Mish Weaver; ‘The BEST trick you have ever seen’.

I get annoyed when people dismiss this element in traditional circus, so many times I’ve heard the equivalent statement that contemporary circus ‘stays with you’, implying that an awesome trick doesn’t. Well it does for me. And here is (putting the ethics debate to one side) an awesome trick:
