The regional traveling contemporary circus festival CirkoБalkana will have its eleventh edition in a circus tent set up next to Silosi Beograd. We are embarking on the second decade with an undiminished desire to promote contemporary circus and its importance in the region not just as an art form but also as a powerful means of social involvement, owing to the authentic and innovative performance vocabulary resulting from its transdisciplinarity. This year’s festival program brings together artists from Spain, Syria, France, Mexico, Italy, Hungary, Slovenia and Serbia, whose performances focus on global issues, not offering answers and solutions, but rather wisely raising questions that prompt thinking.
A flying trapeze of the circus school Turbul from Nimes will also be set up next to the tents, providing both professionals and amateurs with a unique opportunity to try themselves out in this discipline.
The main program will be accompanied by a wide variety of side events such as workshops, concerts, projections, and many other activities.
Tickets for all performances within this program can be purchased through the Bitef website, as well as on-site one hour before the start of the performance.
The festival is run in partnership with the Bitef Festival and the French Institute in Belgrade, with logistic support provided by the Silosi Beograd, GAIA Movement and Luka Beograd.
It is financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Serbia, City of Belgrade, Teatroskop - a program initiated by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, French Ministry of Culture, and Institut français Paris, as well as Italian Institute in Belgrade, Croatian Ministry of Culture and the Erasmus+ program.
Organizers: Cirkusfera (Belgrade) and Cirkorama (Zagreb) in cooperation with 57th Bitef
