THE “FESTIVAL of circus art” Cirkul’art 2013 will again attempt to lure Bratislavans to its performances, training zones, workshops and street shows. The four-day festival, taking place both outdoors and inside a circus tent, will run from May 23-26 and feature numerous Slovak and foreign circus artists, offering programmes for children as well as adults. Some of the performances are free, while others will require an admission fee.
Featuring a medley of theatre and circus, including juggling, tightrope acrobatics, clowns, circus cinema and a fire show, the third year of this festival strives to present a “contemporary circus” within which metaphors, stories and relevant issues are conveyed through traditional circus acts, the SITA newswire wrote.
Last year, 50,000 people came to watch performances. Altogether, artists from 24 countries worldwide have visited Cirkul’art in its three years of existence, SITA added. More detailed information can be found at www.cirkulart.sk.
