Sziget to showcase international array of circus talents

Visitors at this year's Sziget Festival will be treated to a showcase of four circus troupes on each day of the event being held from Aug 10 to 15, organisers have said.

Under a partnership between Sziget and the European Federation of Professional Circus Schools (FEDEC), two circus schools, Amoukanama of Guinea and Hungary’s Baross Imre Circus School, will also get to perform in the Cirque du Sziget area of the festival grounds, the statement said.

Visitors will also get to see Ukrainian circus students who have fled the war perform with Prague-based troupe Cirk La Putyka.

Canada’s Cirque Alfonse troupe will be returning to Sziget for the third time, while Australian group Circa will be closing out the show each night. French trio Das Arnak, Argentina’s manoAmano and Morocco’s Cirque Colokolo will also be among the performers featured.
