CIRCUS WORLD brings all the fun and excitement of the circus to RTÉjr’s young audience.
Set in and around a real Irish circus, Blake (10), Michael (8), Isabella (5) and their parents Mikey and Tara Gerbola will be our hosts. The ten part series follows the adventures of these three lively children as they travel all around Ireland putting up their tent.
Circus Gerbola is run by the children’s mum and dad Mikey and Tara who descend from their own long lines of circus and show business families. The Gerbola family specialises in clowning and goes back eight generations.
Each episode features a circus performer and their big top performance. We meet the different circus artistes – who come from all over the world – and observe the children try out new skills. Among the acts and activities featured are: clowning, acrobatics, wire walking, roller skating, magic, juggling, slapstick, flying, gymnastics and finale.
Each episode culminates with an entertaining aspect of the children’ s life on the road. They are in a different county everyday.
The series will keep children smiling long after the circus has left town.
