City of Split will host its first, small, but proud, contemporary circus festival in September 2020. Peculiar Families Festival will bring together artists from three countries through six performances that will showcase the finest tricks of circus families from all over Europe in an intense four-day program. It is not by chance that this caravan stops in Split. They know about the city through 10 years of work of the contemporary circus collective ROOM 100 and 5 years of work of HALA 100, a residency venue for the contemporary circus that has so far hosted 60 artists and more than 50 different programs. The first edition of the Festival is an opportunity to celebrate these anniversaries with the widest possible family. And that is just the beginning.
Antonia Kuzmanić, artistic director
The day after the performance, we will hang out with the artists over coffee and croissants – come, ask them anything you want to know about the life of circus artists!
Get familiar with Croatian circus artists and their on-going projects / productions through short presentations!
In collaboration with Cirkorama we will talk about contemporary circus scene and cultural policies in Croatia.
