Saison de cirque

Cirque Aïtal

created in 2018

Cirque Aïtal is first and foremost the duo, Victor and Kati, the giant and the "dwarf", both virtuoses ground to air acrobats.
For this new production which recounts a season within a circus, they have rallied other circus artists and musicians met over the years during their peregrinations. A circus ring, sawdust, horses, bodies and souls forged by hard work: everyday life of a travelling circus is depicted with its most trivial ups and downs… with a clear view of the backstage!

CIRCa supports and hosts this show as part of Pyrenart project POCTEFA 2014-2020 (Spain-France-Andorra).
