CIRCOBALKANA- BASIC IDEA

The core of this project are five artists from Croatia and Serbia, who in 2013 launched the Cirkobalkana Festival based on the idea of their own space – a circus tent, a space that would be functional for all regional circus artists, a space that exist in the form of a nomadic educational institution – a kind of circus artist nursery. Cirkobalkana Festival hosts the most diverse artists from the contemporary circus world; simultaneously representing small and emerging regional productions and collaborating with larger and more recognized circus collectives, companies and individual artists from all over the world. With such an approach to the festival’s organization, an idea is to create an atmosphere that encourages socializing and possible future collaboration among all the artists who are present at the festival or are just there as visitors.
