The circus is an art that converts reality into a metaphor.
The metaphor needs a creative act because it implies a transference of meaning and its force, in the circus the metaphor exists in the evocative power of the images that it creates. Metaphor is a creative act because it creates a distance between meaning and the signifier. The creator uses the metaphors in which its meaning is implied.
Consistency is another fundamental element for a creator, she is the mother of sense and the daughter of writing who is also responsible for the parts that create a universe.
