Diploma Project Aaravangalkkapurathu (Beyond the Ring)
Satyanand Mohan

Self Sponsored

The project intends to document the life of these circus artists who are living relics of a certain past. Before they could harvest dreams and aspirations of their own these people joined the circus, which was at times a shelter, at times a cage. They lived in the backdrop the fight against poverty and an omnipresent fear of death, in front of the laughter and applause from the crowd. The circus artists who were at their prime in 1970s are ailing and old now. The objective of this project is to remember their world and document their stories before they fade away.
