Being in the red, seeing red, red as a beet, red alert; there are plenty of expressions referring to the flamboyant colour. It fascinates and establishes itself as some kind of contradictory power. On the one hand, it is associated with life, love, heat, passion, triumph. On the other hand, it makes us think of anger, danger, the forbidden. One thing is for sure: its presence in the circus universe is unquestionable. The exhibition focuses on the significance of colours in the circus. Why is this bright colour used so much? What is hidden behind the generous use of carmine and vermillion?
