View attachment 82452 You have received the following invitation from the popular and accomplished performer Radek Zelenka, owner of the colorful, magical and fanatical circus show "Cirkus Azyl" located in the heart of London. You have been invited because you are not only different to possibly the greatest extremes, but you are also exceptionally talented or full of seen potential. View attachment 82447 Radek, known for his eccentric show and even more bizarre and beautiful performers, has personally invited you to work in his show and be a part of his family. Information for orientation is attached in the letter. Will you join Cirkus Azyl? His warning, while in bright and colorful print in his letter, must not be taken lightly. Those who work for him live in the 5 story training facility and are tracked by a chip for the safety of all performers. You, strange and possibly an outcast of society, have a chance to be someone great; to make a living being the bizarre and different person that you are. The broken, the damaged, they are all welcome. All you have to do is follow the rules. View attachment 82451 ~*~ About Cirkus Azyl! The Circus Asylum show created by Czech artist Radek Zelenka. ~*~ Radek Zelenka grew up traveling Europe with his family in a small yet fantastic and eccentric circus show that included nomads from all walks of life as their performers, usually performers who needed a second chance or a place to call home. When his parents died, Radek desired to continue their show and their desire to help those shunned from society, but on a much grander scale. He created his show Cirkus Azyl and recruited the best performers around, albeit all with their own baggage or eccentricities. To Radek, as long as they could perform to his standards and followed his house rules, they were welcome. Cirkus Azyl has been a raging attraction for the past 5 years, their show and training facility, although separate locations, based out of London. Performers are required to live in the 5 story training facility and are only deducted a small amount from their pay for their rent. Radek still stands by his belief that his performers can be from all walks of life, despite their past or their problems. All he expects from them is perfection in his shows and not to break his rules. Failure to follow his rules will result in being expelled from the facility and the show immediately.

View attachment 82451 ~*~ The Chip Implant ~*~ 1. Every performer on Orientation Day receives the chip implant. It is placed via a small gun in to the side of their neck. It may be taken out with care and proper tools but if dug at recklessly there is a risk of breaking a jugular vein. 2. The Chip implants acts as a GPS signal. This allows Radek to keep track of his team, ensure the safety of them and his show, and allows him to see who is following his rules. 3. The Chip acts as an entrance key. Each Chip is unique to the performer with separate ID codes and access codes. Each performer's apartment will open when the Chip is pressed up to the black access box; no keys are required. 4. The Chip allows Performers access to the facility. Anyone who does NOT have a Chip implant will have a hard time entering the building, or staying in the building. Once someone walks through the front doors, if they do not have a Chip Implant, they will immediately be immobilized with continuous electric shock waves that are sent down from the ceiling; these are structured throughout the building. The electricity has sensors that, based on the stranger it is hitting, will elevate or lower the intensity based on the threshold of the intruder. The shock waves will not only paralyze the stranger but will send waves of painful shocks of electricity throughout their body. It will not end until Radek ends the connection with his master Chip, or the stranger lies unconscious. The shock waves will continue once the stranger wakes up if it is not disabled. This is a security measure for Radek's Facility and his team. Anyone with a Chip will not be harmed by these shock waves as they are meant for anyone who is not allowed in the Facility.
