Peculiar Families Festival will bring together artists from four 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 no coincidence that this caravan landed in Split. They know about the city through more than 10 years of dedicated work of the contemporary circus collective ROOM 100 on the development of the circus scene in Croatia, the Balkans and beyond.

This year, our festival’s gathering begins with the screening of the Disney classic “Dumbo”. “Dumbo” celebrates 80 years since the first screening.
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!
This experimental film with a documentary note by Nikola Mijatović Bangavi points to the lack of adequate space for the work of circus artists in Croatia. Book your place: https://forms.gle/7r41fjehzcDD9sZh9
