'CORK WELCOMES CIRCUS FESTIVAL IRELAND'
Early in 2008, Cork will have its winter blues blown away when 'Circus Festival Ireland' will make Cork the Capital of Circus! This new and exhilarating festival takes place 15th - 17th of February and will light up the city with the skills, grace, colour and comedy of contemporary circus.
Thanks to significant support from the Cork City Council Arts Office, the people of Cork can look forward to some of the brightest stars of contemporary circus coming to town during this three day interactive event. The festival is hosted by University College Cork who are providing their state of the art Mardyke Arena for a weekend of spectacular workshops and games.
This is the ultimate opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities including juggling, acrobatics, clowning, globe walking, uni-cycling, stilt walking, comedy improv and much more! The workshops and games are open to all; beginners as well as advanced!
Some of Europe's most accomplished circus tutors and performers including John Lee (UK), Stefan Sing (Germany), Amani Acrobats (Ireland), Compagnie with Balls (The Netherlands), Imakokode (France), Meghan Pike (Scotland), Olvier 'Olive' Masson (France), Ronan McLoughlin (Ireland), Kamil 'Dzielny' Dzilinski (Poland) & many more are joining in, and on Saturday 16th February 'when the circus comes to town', they will be showing off their talents in two spectacular city centre shows in Cork's Firkin Crane
The city of Cork has now really embraced contemporary circus and in supporting Circus Festival Ireland one and all can look forward to a weekend filled with fun and adventure!
