Four skills we can learn from watching the circus

I saw an amazing show recently. It was the theatre circus show Cirque Berzerk. This is a show which involves amazing acts of acrobatics, tumbling, contortion, and seemingly life-threatening activities such as knife-throwing and the “Globe of Death” in which four motorcyclists ride around inside a mesh globe while a woman...
