Festival for contemporary circus
That was the Winterfest 2021
The last circus performance took place on Saturday 8 January. Winterfest21 was a tightrope act of planning and flexibility – and it was more than worth it!
Gravity & Other Myths opened the festival in the SZENE Salzburg with standing ovations for their incomparable acrobatics. This was followed by Cirque Barcode, who told a story about oblivion with physical virtuosity, and Jos Houben, who explored the different aspects of comedy with great wit.
For two days, the Compagnia Nando e Maila was able to stand in for Wakouwa Teatro and opened the venue in the Volksgarten with their musical programme. On 23 December, the clown duo Wakouwa Teatro played their way into the hearts of the visitors, and after Christmas Circoncentrique performed their acrobatic and playful hymn to the joy of life in circus tent.
We thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts who were once again passionately involved, who worked energetically and generously supported the event.
And of course we thank you: for being there and making the Winterfest what it is with your amazement, joy and applause.
See you at Winterfest 22!
