Multifaceted program

Circusstad is a circus theatre, the newest form of circus where dance, acrobatics, free running, juggling, theatre and music are combined. With a program consisting almost entirely of premières, audiences will be treated to incredible acts never before seen on the Dutch stage.

Companies unite from all corners of the world, including Morocco, France and Belgium. Students of the Codards Circus Arts program at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, artists from Circus Rotjeknor and circus performers from all over Rotterdam strut their stuff and give the public a sneak preview of the next generation of big name acts. Visitors can also test their skills by participating in one of the many workshops.

Great productions

The crème de la crème of the international circus theatre world and local talent present their productions at the festival. A total spectacle awaits audiences.
