circus festival (SRB)

01. -04.07. 2011: SummerFlame - Festival of fire and moving arts, Novi Sad, Serbia

SummerFlame is the first international circus festival in Serbia. The programme consists of workshops und performances, that are held by local and international teachers and artists, as well as concerts in the evenings. There are 300 participants from the Balkan regions and beyond.

SummerFlame is a 'cross-over event' that combines circus arts with moving arts and music, thereby enabling interdisciplinary exchange within the field of performing arts. The festival offers high quality workshops in the disciplines of (fire) juggling and object manipulation, acrobatics, capoeira, ninjutsu, breakdance, parkour, didgeridoo, etc.

The local community is actively involved in the event; there are two big public shows and part of the workshops are open to the public free of charge.

The project aims to promote performing arts in Serbia and hopes to contribute to strengthening the local circus scene and to intensify artistic exchange within the Balkan region as well as on an international level.

SummerFlame is a non profit project being organized in collaboration with the Serbian partner Ustanova Studentski Kulturni Centar Novi Sad.
