What is Festival Circolo?
We are the biggest fan (of circus)
Circus is the most exciting and spectacular cultural form we know. Festival Circolo lovingly honours its rich past and keeps an open eye to the future. Because we absolutely disagree with the idea that circus is something from the past.
In fact: circus is more relevant than ever! Circus is always in motion. And is therefore able to reflect and respond to human existence. On the themes and challenges that concern us all. By presenting contemporary circus, we give our visitors a new view of circus and the world. Never with a raised finger, but always through the power of surprise and astonishment.
We give artistic top athletes, pioneers, daredevils and go-getters a stage. We make voices audible that need to be heard and that we fully endorse. And we love to see our audience with open mouths, big eyes, sweaty hands and gnashing teeth. Because at Festival Circolo, you will discover how extraordinary people and their stories are. And you are guaranteed to become a circus fan, just like us!
