CIRKULIACIJA

Šilainiai 2018 07 09 - 2018 07 22 Web site Purchase ticket

“Cirkuliacija“ is a community-based educational contemporary circus festival, happening in Kaunas from 2016 and growing ever since. The festival aims to disseminate a rather unknown and new (locally) genre of performing arts – to make it more known and, by different community interventions, accessible.

The organizers and the participants of the festival believe that circus is one of the best tools to bring different people together. This way the festival becomes a space for discussions, sharing experiences and learning from one another. By renouncing any kind of hierarchy we see art as a co-creation process, in which the contribution of every person involved has an enormous meaning. 

The team of the contemporary circus festival „Cirkuliacija“ will invite the residents and visitors of Kaunas to break their daily borders (both social and physical) on July 9-22. The borders will break not only with the help of unique circus shows, workshops and family events, but, first of all, the festival will put a big pink circus tent beneath the balconies of big apartment houses in the grey neighborhood of Šilainiai.
