The 2014 festival comprises 8 performances in 8 venues in 16 days. We have handpicked from the newest generation of European artists who give us their bold bids on what contemporary circus has to offer in 2014. And we have lured hit performances up here, so they can finally be experienced in Copenhagen. In tents, on stages, outdoors…

The festival opens with circus amour in the ring and flying acrobats under the open sky. Charismatic egg juggling in a secret cinema. Rope served in 100 different ways. Reckless artistry with knife throwing, fire and axe balancing. One man, a roll of wire and two poles in all its sublime simplicity. A world champion of magic, who makes reality - and people - vanish. Head juggling and wheel spin with Southern charm and Scandinavian precision.

Ny Cirkus Festival 2014 is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, the City Council of Copenhagen, EU Culture/Circus Work Ahead, Wallonie-Bruxelles International, Institut Francais + Région Midi-Pyrenées and Institut Francais + Région Bretagne.

CONTEMPORARY CIRCUS MOVES INTO SCHOOLS
Contemporary circus is sport, art and learning all in one. Which is why, already this year, young people in 18 municipalities across Denmark will be taught contemporary circus in school. With a DKK 5.5 million grant from Nordea-fonden for Contemporary Circus in the Curriculum, contemporary circus will become an alternative to football and mathematics alike. Read more here.


EU GRANT FOR CIRCUS DEVELOPMENT
CIRCUS WORK AHEAD is the title of a collaboration project between KIT, Circa (FR), Les Halles (BE) and Cirqueon (CZ) which has received a 2-year EU Culture grant for working on mobility, national diffusion of contemporary circus, master classes for young artists and audience development. The project runs 2013-15.
