What is a revolution?

A spin.

So what is a CIRKOLUTION!? It’s a spin, a wordplay, a ball game but most of all the promotion of contemporary circus.

CIRKOLUTION! is the only festival in Bulgaria presenting contemporary circus arts, including open-air performances, a variety of circus workshops and the so called “Circus Debates” – a forum for professional exchange.

We are dedicated to making this festival accessible to as many audiences as possible offering both free of charge and paid events.

In line with our commitment to Social Circus, CIRKOLUTION! particularly aims at reaching people with special needs.

The festival programme includes international acts and artists, interactive outdoor shows for kids and adults, and a selection of workshops such as juggling, acrobatics and clowning.

 

Join us and let’s live the CIRKOLUTION! together!

10 to 13 October 2024 @ Toplocentrala, Sofia, Bulgaria.
