About

The Eastern European contemporary circus contest CYRKULACJE is an extraordinary festival of creators, artists and viewers who are enchanted by the New Circus. New Circus entertains, moves and creates images full of content and emotions. You are not going to see animal taming here, but instead, you will witness the awe-inspiring craftsmanship of artists in a variety of circus disciplines.

Since 2017, the Cyrkulacje contest is an international competition it is open to artists from Central and Eastern Europe: Poland, Finnland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, Czech Republic, Hungary, Ukraine and Slovakia.

Our goal is to

DISCOVER TALENTS
SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF ARTISTS
PROMOTE CIRCUS ART AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL

The final shows of this year’s CYRKULACJE will be held on October 9-11 in the opera hall of the Center for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin (Centrum Spotkania Kultur w Lublinie). Artists from Finland, Ukraine, Poland, Hungary and Belarus will present their disciplines in unique acts and prove how beautiful and creative contemporary circus art is. Each act has a chance to win one of three main jury awards and special prizes, including the Best Trick Prize, the Carnaval Sztukmistrzów Festival Prize, the Media Prize – and of course – especially precious for every artist – the Audience Prize.
Come and see it for yourself!
