Peculiar Families Festival will bring together artists from four countries through five performances that will showcase the finest tricks of circus families from all over Europe in an intense three-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.
