An event like no other, Sonepur Fair in India is a carnival of magical realism inhabited by exotic dancers, exorcists, stuntmen and elephant tamers. Colorful multitudes crowd the arena as the ecstatic sound of drums fills the dusty, sticky air. Men with gleaming black mustaches lead nervous horses; drive wild motorcycles in daredevil stunts; and organize outrageous parades. Each circus-goer has their own techniques for master the energy of the fair, both mechanical and organic, magic and electric.
