Running from 14 to 19 February, the event, which is one of the world’s biggest circus festivals, stars 76 artists from 12 countries performing in 24 shows that have never been seen in Europe before.

In addition, new disciplines have been added to the festival, such as Denis Degtyarev’s aerial pole (Russia), and the spectacular wheel of death of the Flyers Valencia (Colombia). Other performers hail from Brazil, the USA, Japan and Mongolia.
