Roma circus deals with far-right surge
Paris's Cirque Romanes, a 25-year old act with contortionists, jugglers and trapeze artists, draws an enthusiastic crowd in Paris, but feels unwelcome in some cities.

The Roma circus is accusing French society of discriminating against the show, based on their group's ethnicity.

In spring, the performers pack up to bring their show to other French cities, roaming around the country for the rest of the year. But in recent years, with the rise of populist and nationalist opinions in France, showrunner Alexandre Romanes said it has been more difficult to travel with their show.
