The Metropolitan Grand Circus and the Imre Baross Artist Training Institute (BIAK) celebrated World Circus Day in an unusual way: Ukrainian and Hungarian artist educators are caught! They presented a joint program at the Artists’ Colony and handed over props from the proceeds of BIAK’s previous program, Midsummer Night’s Dreamers, to Ukrainian artist educators.

World Circus Day has been celebrated on the third Saturday of April every year since 2007, but this year has been postponed to April 21, as the hospitality artists of Kiev and Kharkiv performed in Monaco with the organizing committee of the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival in a series of lectures. But already it was previously decided that a joint performance with Hungarian artists would be planned on World Day.

Before the one and a half hour presentation, the director of BIAK, Dénes Gábor Kovács, greeted the audience and reminded them that the co-production of Ukrainian and Hungarian students is a message to the world: acceptance, co-creation and thinking together is created.

Secretary of State for Culture Peter Fekete always carries with him a cultural treasure, this time asking the Museum of Hospitality to borrow a balance sheet from 1910. “From time-to-time, we have to balance the things of our lives: if trouble, need are included in one pan, responsibility, opportunity, care must be immediately included in the other. How good and exemplary that there are people among us who don’t consider if it’s about help. The Recirquel company with Bence Vági at the forefront was not considered, Tünde Vincze, who helped the refugees from Ukraine with 1HUF million, and Krisztián Kristóf, who changed his life and receives the homeless refugees in his own home, was not considered, ”said the Secretary of State for Culture. Peter Fekete recalled that more than 120 students have been living with us for more than a month now, more than 20 families have come to us who have rested for a few days and then moved on to Western Europe. The Budapest Grand Circus in Budapest is a place whose gates are open to artists and they know it all over the world. “The most important message of the World Circus Day is that circus art is cohesive, no matter who it comes from and where it is, where it helps, supports and catches when someone falls,” said Péter Fekete, who wanted strength and perseverance for everyone. He thanked the helpers for their work and expressed the hope that those forced to leave their homeland would be able to return home as soon as possible.

Subsequently, the Hungarian students handed over to their Ukrainian counterparts the props purchased from the proceeds of BIAK’s all-arts and charity piece entitled Midsummer Night’s Dreamers, so that they could continue their professional studies without interruption. On behalf of all of them, the props were thanked by Momot Svitlana, artistic director and stage director of the Harkiv artist training school. “On behalf of the students, teachers and parents left behind in Ukraine, I would like to say a huge thank you for everything. They welcome us with warmth and humanity, take care of us, provide food, accommodation and equipment for everyday life, as well as provide various programs. But most importantly, our kids can keep practicing and developing their beloved profession, ”said Momot Svitlana, Catch Up! performance director. In the first half of the program celebrating World Circus Day, Kiev and Kharkiv artist educators shone their versatile knowledge. In addition to circus art productions, the art of dance and movement interwoven with pantomime elements. In the second half of the performance, the young talents of BIAK enchanted the audience with their different genre numbers. This year was a special World Circus Day in a historic position.

Overall, thanks to the unparalleled collaboration in Hungarian circus artNational Circus Arts Center, INspirál Circus Center, BIAK, Recirquel Company, Balance Acrobatics & amp; Torna Club, Vincze Tünde Production – Ukrainian artist educators can continue their studies in safety, while continue to develop together with their Hungarian peers.

The Ambassador of Viennese café culture: Julius Meinl! According to the “Pay by Poem” initiative, you can pay for coffee with a line of poem written on a piece of paper in the participating coffee houses. The title compared to last year has changed a bit when we bought coffee at any Julius Meinl café or patisserie for money during a campaign called “Say Hello,” then received a coupon  for a next coffee that provided a free coffee to hand over to our friend. The free coupon can be used until Tuesday, May, 31. 2022.

Mind you, you don’t have to be a poet … everyone is a poet in their own way… give it a try … go for it … and maybe be surprised to see, reveal, the secret as to be a poet inside of you

Budapest Grand Circus – 3 New Productions: RAIN – Rain Circus & Magic Show & “A 0” Show

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Press and media representatives joined the invitation by the Budapest Grand Circus to view a couple of performances from the shortly coming Rain – Rain Circus production. Welcoming the gathering Mr. Péter Fekete, Secretary of State for Culture at the Ministry of Human Resources also Director of the Budapest Grand Circus said the following: „The circus on the one hand cheers and on the other hand reflects on what happens in our everyday lives. The Rain Circus is like that, in addition to the happiness of entertainment, it reflects a desire for peace. Continued … „The Budapest Grand Circus welcomed more than a hundred Ukrainian young individuals from the Kharkiv and Kiev artist schools and provide them with accommodation, meals and internships. Artist families fleeing the war come to us every week and rest with us for a few days before moving on to Western Europe, but there are those who want to wait with us for the end of the war. The world is confused. People scolded each other more and more, opposites multiplied, neighbors fell on each other, clouds of poison, anger and hatred dripped into friendships, covering the shale gray skies. Wars broke out, shots and explosions drove families out of their homes. And then the Lord God looked down on the earth and was horrified. So he summoned the angels to fly to the four equator and to storm with their trumpets, to summon thick clouds, and to rain. A rain that washes away contradictions with its crystal droplets, dissolves bitter tears, heals wounds, clears the tempers from the souls of people, brings peace back to the created world. Rain has been a symbol of purification and rebirth – for millennia. Fertility and the cure for a land wounded by drought and a soul wounded by tempers. The rain washes away the sorrows and tragedies, and its drops bring new life: cleaner, more beautiful, more prosperous.

The Budapest Grand Circus show is about peace and peace – which has not been more relevant in recent decades than it is to-day.

Director also emphasizedOn the circus stage there is no difference whether a person’s nationality is Russia or Ukraine or Belarus or Hungarian …  artist-is-an-artist. No religion, nor color of skin, affiliation matters, the only thing that keeps them strong the togetherness their faith in circus world.”

In the new show of the Budapest Grand Circus RAIN – Rain Circus, evokes this rain. The show is a circus prayer for peace and purification, grace and forgiveness. We pray that the world will be a more beautiful and better place, and that anger and hatred will evaporate from the hearts of the people as the water drops of the spring shower rest on the leaves under the influence of the first warm rays of the sun.

Just mentioning a connection from the past to the present of the Budapest Grand Circus … In mid-January 1971, the only stone circus in Central Europe, opened its doors! And what a coincidence or not, Mr. Péter Fekete had bought a rain-maker which was in use in 1971,  a weather manipulator from the Meteorological Institute Budapest to show to the press gathering. He said in 1971 when the country had rare rainy days throughout the year this device brought rain. No worries, to-day the High-Tech at the Budapest Grand Circus the RAIN is brought by the magical technique and the rainy season comes from the fountain.The highly successful water circus show returns to the Budapest Grand Circus with new tracks! In the circus, nothing is impossible, the artists refute the laws of physics and take  audience into a magical world.

The program Rain – Rain Circus features mostly Russian, as well as Ukrainian, Belarusian and three young Hungarian artists. In the performance of the Rain Circus, the stage transforms into a fountain, a lake and a raging sea; the fountain, for example, consists of seven hundred nozzles, the pool is filled with 11,000 liters of 27 Celsius degree water.

Circus leader – József Graeser told that Pippa and Bobby, the two female clowns, are also part of the show, entertaining their audience with four puppies. Also added, the female clowns are a rarity in the world of the circus, but at the Budapest Grand Circus nothing impossible to come true. The lady clown will bring laughter all the way through the show.

„It is important for us that, in addition to providing full care, children in Kiev and Kharkiv who have fled the war be given the opportunity to continue their professional studies and practice in their productions. In addition, various recreational programs are organized” said by the leader of the circus. Continued by saying … „Almost every day many are interested in the fate of the Ukrainian artist and trainers we have. In the new performance of the production the project of the Imre Baross Artist Training Institute (BIAK) can be seen at the CircusTheatrum for 2 days: March 22 and 23 were able to witness the meeting of different branches of art. The proceeds of the piece, which was a success at the 14th Budapest International Circus Festival, will be shown by the school to help students of the Kharkiv and Kiev art schools from Ukraine. From the proceeds, they purchased props to catch up within their professional studies. The props will be handed over to them on April, 21 by Gábor Dénes Kovács, Director of BIAK.” Also on April, 21, 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. BIAK and the Ukrainian artistic students will present their joint production as a press event.

The circus of art will have two coming up magical shows this summer: RAIN – “Rain Circus” and the MAGIC Show.

Also like to draw visitors attention to another near future event in coming early May … “Bring Grandma and Mom to the circus! On the first Sunday of May, the grand Circus welcome everyone to another family event where they can get a glimpse into the everyday life of a dog trainer led by Mikhail after the RAIN – Rain Circus. Eszter Petró, our animal welfare officer, is holding a training with therapeutic dogs, where spectators can try out the tricks.

Last but not least … “We have a table in between the seats with a glass of wine and champagne for those who want passion and sensuality. In addition to French and Russian-Ukrainian stars, the show will also feature Hungarian magicians” said Péter Fekete. He added, that as part of the Madách International Theater Meeting (MITEM), viewers will be able to see Five-Days-a-Week bringing matinee with a special water circus show, an exclusive show for adults on Friday and Saturday nights. 

The ancient traditions of the superb Vietnam meet the modern world and the ever-growing urbanization. Indeed a very spectacular special Vietnamese circus theater piece titled A O Show on May 5-8.  They showcase how can ancient beliefs the quiet and peace be maintained in our changing ongoing noisy surrounding world. This piece of show really cannot be missed. The audience can see it six times in the circus tent, built in the area of ​​the zoo next to the Budapest Grand Circus.

News in picture – Downunder Koala born in Europe

_123948211_longleatkeeperjonovensfeedseucalytpusleavestothebabykoaladuringherweeklyweighinpicstevemytton

Jon Ovens, the lead keeper at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire,devised a creative way of weighing a baby koala as it clings to the back to a soft toy of its substitute mother, who normally lives in the gift shop.

The seven-month-old unnamed joey is the first ever southern koala to have been born in Europe.

She now survives solely on eucalyptus leaves and her weight is a key indicator of her health, keeper Jon Ovens said. The koala’s mother Violet gave birth at the Wiltshire safari park last year.

Koalas give birth after around a month-long pregnancy. Joeys are born blind, hairless and about the same size as a jellybean. Within minutes the baby must find its way into its mother’s pouch where it continues to grow and develop. It will occasionally leave the pouch and explore but will remain largely dependent on its mother until it is up to a year old.

Such a heartwarming news these days.
