Some of Russia’s top clowns, high-wire artists, and gymnasts have gathered in Bryansk for a joint production by the Russian State Circus and the Nikulin Moscow Circus called ‘Water, Fire and Light Show: the Fountain.’ Dubbed the Nikulin Golden Circus, the show boasts a constellation of classic acts performed by winners of some of the most prestigious circus awards in the world. Veteran clown Vladimir Deryabkin is happy to be working with his old colleague Sergey Gulchenko and childhood friend Anatoly Sokol in a rare reunion of circus greats. The only wildcard in the glittering company is Stepan the Bear, who is none too pleased about working in a new venue with new props. Vladimir’s wife Irina is especially nervous: Will Stephan spoil the star-studded show?
