Running off with the circus wasn’t something Giovanni Zoppé’s parents ever worried about.
Why would they? The circus was a family gig.
Zoppé was first introduced to the audience as a newborn by his father. From an early age, Zoppé remembers being around the show. Often he was wandering rather than being a scripted performer. That changed at about 10 years old. Since then, he’s been in the ring for every show. It’s his life.
“People need to know what [the circus] is really about. Circus is theater,” he said.
The family act travels inviting each location to join the family fun. From Oct. 12 through Oct. 26, Zoppé, An Italian Family Circus, will return to downtown Redwood City with both matinee and evening shows. For Zoppé, Redwood City is a special part of the traveling show. His son was born in Redwood City three years ago. Now the little one, like Zoppé as a child, enjoys being part of the show.
“He’s teaching me what’s pure and real,” Zoppé said of his son.
The hope is to continue to provide an experience that matches what a circus is like in a child’s imagination, he said.
