February, 2-6. Budapest

District XIV. – 12/a Állatkerti Rd.   – Budapest


 The pre-shows will be twice a day at 11a.m. and 3 p.m. on each date, the  21st and 22nd  –  28th and 29th of January, 2012. 

Discover and sence the breathtaking stunts!


The representatives of the press and media were called to see for themselves and to spread the news about this forthcoming grand circus festival. The Budapest’s 9th International Circus Festival had come up with a new concept and will be brought into a tradition. They would like to introduce, a so-called pre-show with the artist of the highest standards before the festival.  These were the opening words before showing a slice of the forthcoming grand 9th International Circus Festival here in Budapest.  The circus will show for the first time new faces under the dome. The relatively short intro show gave a taste of what to expect in the run of the Hungarian artists in the circle of the “CIRCUSLAND” . The artist’s acrobatic stunts caught the eye and we had a breathtaking experience watching their performances.

The circus started with the very talented, present and former artists from the “István Baross” Institution for Artist. The next intro was given by the Due Lavision, both already have had been on the world’s several platforms. They will be also running in the competition.The intro show ended-up with the Rolling Wheels.  The artist’s acrobatic stunts caught the eye and we had a breathtaking experience watching their performances. These artists really will open wide the eyes of the audience. There’s great expectation for them that’s for sure. All the performers did a grand job. Hopefully many will step ahead, be closer to the door to be discovered as new talents in the land or should I say in the World of Circus. 

Follow-up this special event to be present at the participant artists from all around the World.

Next month will re-launch the 16 year’s anniversary of the traditional International Circus Festival arranged in every second year at Budapest.  This is a venue, an absolute test for the competitors. Whilst the audience will be having an awesome time the circus directors and agents arriving from abroad will be carefully watching, searching for the new talents.

The past years showed many artist’s started their career towards conquer in the international world of circus under the dome at the Hungarian circus.

The circus festival will be welcoming artist from 18 countries, like: Columbia, USA, Cuba, Canada, Finland, Belgium, Switzerland, Armenia and Russia.

This year there will be five productions showed by the Hungarian competitors.

The competition will be divided into two parts. Will be appearing in two shows. The 9th International Circus Festival’s Gala show will be on the 6th of February, whereas the best-of-the-best competitors will be handed-over their award. The jury will hand out one gold, two silver and three bronze awards.

This year there will be a professional jury with the presence by children and a media jury who will also value and rate the performances.

This year’s guest of honor will be at the closing ceremony Mr. Semen Shuster, the famous clown arriving from Germany.

While Shakespeare said …  “The world is a theater… people are actors in it.”

Fellini insisted …  “The world is a circus …  people are the clowns in it.”

The performances of the circus have had always a social message and will still have in the future.

  8. Needed to send you one little note to be able to give thanks as before considering the wonderful tips you’ve shared on this site. It’s really wonderfully open-handed of people like you to give unhampered exactly what many of us would have advertised as an e-book in order to make some dough for themselves, certainly given that you might have done it if you decided. Those strategies as well acted to be a fantastic way to understand that the rest have the same desire just as my very own to find out good deal more with regards to this condition. I’m sure there are lots of more pleasant sessions ahead for many who read carefully your blog.
