“Baltic Circus on the Road” at Cirkuliacija festival
“Baltic Circus on the Road” showcase presented in the circus festival Cirkuliacija during June 8–11 2022 in Kaunas, Lithuania.
“Baltic circus on the road” project started in 2021, when an international jury chose four Baltic companies: Sabok cirkus, Kanta company, Taigi cirkas and Big Wolf Company – artists with great potential to represent the quality of the Baltic circus arts in European scope.
This week, the artists are welcomed to present their latest shows and work-in-progress creations at Cirkuliacija festival in Kaunas, the wonderful Lithuanian city which is the Capital of Culture 2022 and also hosts up to 100 circus professionals that visit Circostrada – The European network for contemporary circus and outdoor arts – members’ meeting and festivals’ artistic programme. This is a great honour and opportunity for “Baltic circus on the Road” artists to be seen, promote networking and international relations with the prospect of taking part in international festivals and events in future, as well as to attract the attention of European festival organisers to the stage of the Baltic contemporary circus in general.
