Clowns suffer, adapt in Peru due to the pandemic

Circus clown Santos Chiroque, whose performance name is “Piojito,” or Little Tick, looks into a mirror as he demonstrates how he puts on his clown makeup, using just lipstick, outside his home on the outskirts of Lima, Peru, Monday, Aug. 10, 2020. Chiroque’s family used to run their own small circus, but since March when the lockdown to curb COVID-19 closed down their business, and the requirement for people over 60 to self-quarantine kept the 74-year-old at home, they started selling circus food like caramelized apples to survive.
