Cirque Du Soliel: Les Maclomas

The French clown trio, Les Maclomas, perform in the Cirque Du Soliel show, Quidam, in the 1990s.

I've always enjoyed their work, but have never been able to find much information about them. This morning I found a documentary about them entitled Le Double Et Son Clowns about their experience with Cirque, and featuring them training three clowns to replace them in the show.

I'm guessing one of the new clowns might be Eric "Royo" Sanchez, whom I worked with on Ringling in 2007. I know he replaced the red clown on the Quidam tour.

I know what I'll be watching tonight!
