It was during winter time. Outside of the circus, everything was white, covered with thick snow, but inside everything was dim and dark. There was an enormous contrast between the clean whiteness of the outside and the dirty darkness of the circus itself.

I was looking below the shiny surface of the circus shows to find a very quiet and not at all glamorous environment.
