Circ Luís Raluy, 72, peeks from behind a curtain to watch "Alexandros," the Romanian Acrobatic Troupe, preform. Raluy is one of the three founding brothers of Circ Raluy, a family circus that travels around the globe. Light streams though an opening in the Big Top of Circ Raluy in Barcelona, Spain. The sister act Jillian, 16, and Kimberly Giribaldi-Raluy, 18, stretch before entering the stage to preform the 'water-meteor,' a juggling routine involving acrobatics. Maria's brother Cornel Neaugu and her husband Marius Aurel Fatu practice a new acrobat routine before a night of two performances. Maria would like to have a baby in the next year so the two men are preparing an act so she can have time off while pregnant. Members of Alexandros smoke behind the Big Top before the first performance on opening day in Barcelona, Spain on December 4, 2015. In just two days a Big Top is hoisted into the sky in a park in Port Vell, Barcelona, Spain transforming it into Circ Raluy. The circus has traveled throughout Spain and Portugal for 70 years and is the only museum circus in the world. Members of the Alexandros troupe prepare eat lunch together outside their caravans discussing other circuses. Alex, Lili and their daughter Alexia live right next to Maria and Marius. "Alexia has two mothers, I can't believe she's not mine," Maria said. Waiting for her father for feedback on practice, Kimberly Giribaldi-Raluy, 18, sits on a chair designed for her and her sister's Icarian Games performance. Icarian Games is normally performed by two brothers or a brother and a sister because of the strength needed. Luís preformed as an acrobat all his life until old age and Parkinson's inhibited his physical ability. Now Raluy preforms as a clown in Circ Raluy alongside his children, nieces and nephews. During the opening week in Barcelona, there are two performances a day. Alina Dankova stretches backstage before the first show of the series on December 4.
