SEMÁFORO (Stoplight)



“Under the three lights of a Colombian stoplight a beautiful circus act becomes a terrifying freak show”

“Due to the ongoing war in the Colombian jungles, many people is forced to flee their rural territories and find refugee in capital cities. Their only mean of acquiring money is to put on shows under the city stoplights. Some dress like clowns or do acrobatics, others spit fire or juggle; and some show the only thing they have left: deformities and amputations in exchange for some sympathy and change.

This is the life of the people that live under a stoplight and the people who watch them.”
