BALTIMORE MUSEUM OF ART: Dominique Jando and Tom Dougherty (March 31, 2009)

Dominique Jando performed as a clown in Paris with the legendary Cirque Médrano and has written prolifically on circus history, including the recently acclaimed book The Circus: 1870-1950. He reflects on his experience of circus life and invites audience members to participate in an interactive discussion. 

The talk was followed by a panel discussion with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® circus performers: hair hanging woman Andrea Ayala-Raffo, clown eccentric Tom Dougherty, and ringmaster Chuck Wagner. The discussion wass moderated by Circus Historical Society president Richard Flint.
