The Bremer Circus started in the city of Porto Alegre in the South Region of Brazil and they travel to several towns in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. They have around 30 people in the team and each family lives in their own motorhome. All the family members perform in the show apart from helping behind the scenes.

Manuel Olivares, better known as Pepito the clown, is Chilean and he has started the circus life when he was only a child, performing with his dad. Today, Pepito’s children, Kenai and Kiara, and his wife Lisiane also perform in the circus with him.

Helouise Portugal is a ballerina and once on her motorcycle she also participates of the “Globe of Death”. She has been in the circus life since she was born “I wouldn’t change my life for anything”. Melanie Portugal is also a ballerina and as everybody from the circus team she helps whenever it’s needed, could be selling popcorn or organising the ticket queue.
