In three days, you get to know new forms of circus. The spectacle between bodies and objects is more than a series of separate acts. Movement, imagination, dance and visual art come together in new stories and worlds. Contemporary circus is an art discipline that is developing rapidly, especially in a city like Amsterdam full of outsiders and daredevils. Therefore, besides festivals in Tilburg and Rotterdam, there is now also a festival in Amsterdam.
This is not a circus presents performances and acts for (young) adults and professionals that flirt with, among others, visual arts, dance, performance art and drag. For the main programme, two full-length performances have been selected that have never before been performed in Amsterdam. CM_30: minimalistic circus full of colour and acoustic compositions by Kolja Huneck. And Familiar Faces can be seen with Surface: an acrobatic quartet that balances between control and recklessness.
