the 17th Edition has a very significant subtitle, GROW UP. A common thread following the entire programme, it reminds us of what the Festival has been doing all these years. It represents a growth for those younger companies that show here their works in progress.
A growth for the audience who has been experiencing the circus lifestyle in a myriad of different locations year after year. A growth of cultural awareness through the selection of high-quality shows. A growth of awareness through different side activities and training opportunities.
