Gwendolien Sabbe, Circus Nomads

postgraduaat digital storytelling

NL

Circus Nomads shares online stories from circus performers past and present and their way of life.

I’ve started with a project unearthing a wealth of history on Belgian circus artists who journeyed to America between 1900-1940, working for Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey and the vaudeville theatres. My goal is to tell these stories online. While undertaking this research I came across a rich seam of circus artists past and present. This intriguing curveball that landed outside the remit of my original research parameters created this itch, an irresistible desire to share these unexpected stories too.

You’ll find ‘Circus Nomads’ on Facebook, Instagram, www.circusnomads.com and in a later phase a newsletter.
