For more than 12 years, L’Occitanie fait son cirque en Avignon make news and allows to emerging and well-known companies to reveal the diversity and ingenuity of circus creation.
In l’île Piot, a big top and a gymnasium converted into an indoor venue create a true circus village offering each day 9 shows coming from Occitania, other regions or countries. A mere bridge to cross from the inner town and the site of l’Île Piot welcomes the public in a pleasant green environment, far from the crowd of the festival.
For this 13th edition, a challenge : to welcome in Villeneuve-lez-Avignon, in partnership with the festival Villeneuve en Scène, one of the largest circus tent in France, the one of CirkVOST.
The event is initiated by the Occitania Region with the support of Toulouse Metropole and Grand Auch Coeur de Gascogne. It is coordinated by four structures representative of the circus world in Occitania : La Verrerie d’Alès, executive producer, La Grainerie, the Association of prefiguration for the Superior School of Circus Arts in Toulouse-Occitanie (ESAC-TO) and CIRCa.
