  CIRCUS  IN  SWEDEN

 

SITUATION  IN  SWEDEN

Circus in Sweden is completely without any form of money from the state and so called culturel departments. Every owner has to trust only him- or herself concerning incoming money. Some of the circus- directors are succesfully working with selling their shows to companies such as grocery stores and other stores, some industrial factories, sometimes to schools, sometimes to local community departments and, of course, to all of them who want to put money in a show or two..

Opera and theater takes a lot, a big lot, of our taxmoney. Not to mention the free theater groups, nearly in every corner of the country. And they take millions of swedish kronor.
Circus, however, has to pay for themselves. They pay large sums of kronor to rent a place on grass or sand. And as most circuses travel one-day-stands, these rent-money put together during a season, is a fortune. All other taxes not to mention.

The high costs here is one reason why circuses sometimes are short- living. Some people never give up, and we are lucky here in Sweden to have circus touring at all.

J DAHLIN PHOTOPAGES
I must mention a man, not circusowner, circusartist or circusworker, but with a great love for circus and known as one of Europe´s finest photographers in the circus-world. His photos can be seen in most major newspapers in Scandinavia and abroad and in the circuses program-magazines. His name JANERIC DAHLIN. (2 photopages can you See here).
