For the people and visitors of Marseille there will be much excitement in the village of the 6 Circus Big Tops early this year.  Circus troupes from around the world will engage in workshops and talks, delivering exceptional moments in a fun-filled event at the Friche de la Belle de Mai.

The contemporary, the unusual, the magical, the avant-garde, and the burlesque will intermingle and will offer a plethora of brand-new creative works!  These works will reflect not only aesthetic diversities, but also the very fundamentals of circus performance art.

Marseille is the first large European city to align itself with contemporary circus performance art, the most innovative theatrical art movement today. This event will represent an ideal link with its status as the European Capital of Sport 2017, awarded to Marseille on October 14th 2014. Acrobats, jugglers, tight-rope walkers, or even dancers are more than just talented artists, but rather, as circus performers they are considered accomplished athletes.  This event will be an amazing experience for all of the family.
