Djshighit/Cossack Riding Act (RUSSIA)
Djshighitriding/"Djshighitowka" is considered as one the most favorite act among the audience. The circus-ring is crowded with horses and people. Original riding sequences in a very high speed tempo are varied with energetic dancing. All these factors, together with the amazing costumes and the specific music, form the act into a sheer experience.
Elbrus Isufovich PLIEV, artiste and leader of the troupe, entered the circus-ring for the first time in 1970. His artistic career started in the djshigitriding troupe of Tamerlan Nugsarov, and immediately he proved to become a talented performer.
In 1980, he presented his own act "Horse Rodeo" performed by his troupe. This act was in the absolute premiere, at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Summer-Games of 1980 in Moscow.
In 1993, the Pliev Troupe was awarded the "Grand Prix" at the International Circus-Festival in Rome and the "Special Price of the Jury" at the INTERNATIONAL CIRCUS FESTIVAL OF MONTE-CARLO.
