The Great Bombay Circus 2022

The Great Bombay Circus Nazarbad Mysore:

It was on October 2, 1977, in Danapur town Bihar that Great Bombay CIRCUS had its maiden performance, under the enterprising leadership of M. V. Shankaran. Distinguished leaders of our country, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, E. M. S. Namboodiripad, Jyothi Basu, N.T. Rama Rao and E. K. Nayanar were among those who had witnessed the show over a period of time.

The Great Bombay Circus pioneered the introduction of world-class Russian artists to the Indian Circus and heralded the new era of Indo- Soviet Cultural exchange. The death-defying acts during the launch performance at Calcutta in December 1994 had created a sensation in the media to the extent that it was strongly felt that the Circus industry was on a comeback trail! Great Bombay had always stood to its name as it has the largest circus troupe in India. It is the one and only Circus which had a full-fledged menagerie right from its inception. It has been rated as the best consistently for the past three decades due to the high standards in innovation, presentation technology, and of course customer preference.

The highlight is the African Troupe, which includes seven members, Team leader Khamis Salum Zubwa, Amiri Kisingaji Mvamba, Shabani Jirani Omari Kabulule, Rajabu Saidi Rajabu, Abdulatwif Ally Namtundunya, Abasi Adam Mkwama, Mohamed Abdallah Mnwuga. The Acrobatic Acts they perform include the following: 1. Formation of Human Pyramids, 2 – Limbo Dance and Fire Eating, 3. Pole Acrobatics, 4. Contortion: This acrobatic act needs special mention as the performer showcases remarkable flexibility. The ease with which the performer bends his body in different front bending and back bending positions is a major attraction.
