The first three ring circus was the result of PT Barnum and James A. Bailey, who combined their acts in 1881. The idiom “three-ring circus” describes a kind of chaotic yet entertaining situation (“the house I grew up in was like a three ring circus”). In addition, the “three ring circus” might be used to describe an event or institution whose organization is tenuous (“this office is like a three ring circus”), or it might describe an event where there is a lot going on without visible direction (“this committee meeting is like a three ring circus”).
A real three ring circus includes performers who that include clowns, acrobats, trained animals, trapeze acts, musicians, dancers, hoopers, tightrope walkers, jugglers, magicians, ventriloquists, and unicyclists as well as other stunt-oriented artists. Together, these performers execute a tightly-organized, highly-prepared show that takes talent, years of practices, skill, and sometimes risk.
The three ring circus is the best example of how sometimes fast-moving, high energy, spaces seem like there is no order – and yet each step is choreographed, each leap and turn and unexpected fall is completely, 100% intentional.
