And The Circus Leaves Town

Matthew Marigold


And the Circus Leaves Town conveys the exaggerated emotions and the alternative personalities expressed by someone under the influence of alcohol and detached socialization. The protagonist is a beat-up clown, confused, down on his luck, exasperated and drunk on his own fallibility. Marigold adapts the image of the sad clown in a bar to create a character for whom voyeurs feel empathy.
