Weise Troupe

This high perch act was a part of the Barnum and Bailey’s show at Madison Square Garden. The Weise Troupe uses a pole so long it would not fit on a conventional stage. Two boys perform on the top of the pole while balancing on the shoulders of the understander.

Royal Mikado Athletes

This Japanese wrestling act was part of the Barnum and Bailey’s show and was thirteen minutes long on the full stage. The Royal Mikado have been brought over from Europe for the show. The performers do some fast Japanese wrestling and Jiu Jitsu. The act opens with two slim girls who do jiu jitsu with the male wrestlers. There is then a male-only wrestling tournament, in which the winner of each match faces the next person. The closing is a fight between the entire troupe, two at a time.
