At the circus, everything takes place in a circle with a circumference of 41 meters, corresponding to fourteen horse gallops, and measuring 13 meters in diameter, a distance defined by the length of a chambrière, a long whip that allows the horseman or woman standing in the centre to direct the horses and adjust their pace.
The circular ring is a metaphor for the family circle and, more generally, the community. The round big top revolves around a central axis, creating a closed space in which the show takes place. Four openings in the tent mark the four cardinal points.
Before leaving for a new city, circuses leave a ring of sawdust on the ground as witness to their dazzling and fleeting passage through the land of men.
