A remarkable family of musical clowns, the Jandaschewskys arrived in Australia in 1900 from the circuses of Europe. Their original and eccentric performances entertained Australian audiences on the vaudeville stage and in the circus ring until well into the 1950s. This book tells this family's compelling story and traces the traditions and skills handed down through the generations. It's a tale of acrobats, clowns, musicians and dancers, of a father-and-son clowning team and two extraordinary women. Based on the Powerhouse Museum's collection of the family's costumes, photographs and props, this book provides a personal insight into circus life and history, and is intended to enrich our understanding of contemporary clowning. Book Description: The Jandaschewsky family played a special role in the development of the circus in Australia. A remarkable troupe of clowns who first arrived in Australia in the 1890s, they drew on a rich European tradition that reflected their Russian, Greek, French and Spanish origins. Their original and eccentric acts entertained Australian audiences on the vaudeville stage and in the circus ring, including Wirth's and Fitzgerald's, well into the 1950s. Circus! tells this family's compelling story. It's a tale of acrobats, clowns, musicians and dancers, of a father-and-son clowning team and two extraordinary women. : About the Author: Kimberley Webber Category: Art, Architecture & Photography; ISBN: 1863170642 BZDB395 Inventory No: X119-1485.
