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.
