Festival for contemporary circus in the Volksgarten in Salzburg
The Winterfest, the largest festival for contemporary circus in Austria, has been able to bring this art form closer to the public since 2001. Contemporary Circus is a collection of various art forms. The spectrum ranges from visual art to performing arts with dance, music, drama, acrobatics or puppet theater.
Since 2001, the Winterfest has been bringing well-known groups of the contemporary Circus to the Volksgarten Salzburg. A wide range of different circus companies, mostly from France, but also from Spain, Switzerland or the UK, have already been guests at the tents in the Salzburg Volksgarten. International compagnies are also guests this year again: the energetic artists of Flip FabriQue from Canada, the 22 exceptional acrobats of Cie XY from France, the Belgian artists around Claudio Stellato and the sympathetic clown duo of Compagnia Baccalà from Switzerland.
