This fiery 24-year-old Mexican took up the whole ring. With a crazy dynamism, he complicated his juggling with acrobatics. He never ceased moving, throwing three then five clubs, balls balls to very rhythmic melodies. The highlight of his act was ping pong balls, which he shot into the air with movements of his diaphragm. He started with three balls, returned to two and added a perilous jump between the shot and the catch, then finished with five. The speed was such that it was hard to count. Above all, his originality was his flying sombreros. He used them as others use plates, making a tour of the ring juggling three in one hand. Then he threw five hats into the vast space of the tent and crowned the act with an excellent tumbling run. Alegria won the only prize among the jugglers, the Press Association of Variety, Dance and Circus (PAVDEC) Award

CI HA LASCIATI ARTURO ALEGRIA
Apprendiamo con profondo dispiacere dell’improvvisa scomparsa del grande giocoliere Arturo Alegria avvenuta quest’oggi a Città del Mexico all’età di soli 47 anni.
Arturo era una celebrità non solo nel mondo del circo, ma anche per tutti gli appassionati di giocoleria. Ha calcato le piste più importanti del circo europeo: da Krone a Roncalli, dal Festival di Monte Carlo al Circo Monelli, al Tivoli di Copenhagen fino ai palcoscenici di tutti i principali varieté.
Alla grande famiglia Alegria che tanto lustra ha dato e continua a dare al mondo delle arti circensi giunga forte l’abbraccio del mondo del circo italiano e dello staff di Circusfans Italia. Ringraziamo Roni Bello che ci ha comunicato questa triste notizia e che si unisce al nostro cordoglio.
