LEUVEN CIRCUS TOWN
- Leuven is a genuine circus town.
Starting this spring the cultural centre 30CC and Cirkus in Beweging will emphasise this circus profile with the brand new festival 'CIRKL'.
From May 12th until 14th you'll discover the best circus from today and tomorrow.
Circus is an art form with the natural potential to appeal to a wide and diverse audience.
That is why Leuven will focus even further on circus in the future.
The brand new 'CIRKL' festival wants to put Leuven on the map as a true circus town.
The city has a vibrant circus scene all year long, in different venues and on various levels.
Cirkus in Beweging, one of the largest circus schools in Europe, is probably known best.
For years they've been building a strong and broad circus education, guided by their motto "circus for all".
Besides this circus school, you'll also find a circus department, imbedded in the sports programme of the Koninklijk Atheneum Redingenhof,
and most of all the solid circus programme at 30CC.
The cultural centre has a long tradition in showcasing both established as well as upcoming artists, and in facilitating their creations by offering accomodation for rehearsals, master classes and experimentations in the 30CC/Predikherenkerk.
