The Sarrasani Circus was born when Hans Stosch escapes from his well-to-do house in Lomnitz, at the age of 15, to join an itinerant circus. Stosch, who started in 1888 as a clown with his poodle, in 1902 already presented the Sarrasani, the most modern circus in the world. The following years were expansion: functions throughout Europe, a building in Dresden, and a heritage of 400 animals. World War I decimated the circus. Sarrasani recovered in 1923, with Russian artists escaping the Bolshevik revolution, and set up a circus without a tent. But in 1932, after a fire in Antwerp, only debts remained. Sarrasani began to have problems with Hitler's government, and in 1934 the company embarked for Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Hans Stosch died that year in Sao Paulo, and his son, Hans Stosch Junior, took over the company.
Junior died young, in 1944. Trude, his widow, at age 28 had to transcend his number with horses and run the company. Also, deal with the Nazi regime, which came to stop her, along with Gabor Nemedi, the administrator, with whom she would marry later. Trude restarted from scratch, first as an equestrian artist and then with former track mates. In 1948, Perón and Evita attended the world re-run of the Sarrasani circus and two years later, on the initiative of the first lady, she was conferred the title of Argentine National Circus. Since then, the Sarrasani worked with intermitencias in Europe and in South America until in 1973, Trude and Nemedi decided to disarm it. The couple became friends with the architect Jorge Bernstein, well-known urban developer, who was sponsored and granted the legacy of the Sarrasani Circus for its continuity in the world.
This november, Miami recovers this emblematic history, being an unavoidable reference, a mirror for the circuses of the world. There have been and may exist new circuses, but Sarrasani has remained in history as an emblematic name, a sound that has appropriated an entire expressive genre, a magical voice that for the popular imagination is, simply, synonymous with circus.
