  • Duo Koas

    Duo Kaos

    Italy

    Giulia Arcangeli and Luis Paredes as Duo Kaos reinvent cycling with ease and elegance. They tell a story about the fact that creation and destruction are ultimately the same process and everybody tries to transform chaos into harmony – with the aim of leaving everything behind. And that comes with some romance too.

  • Circo Eguap

    Argentina

    Risky acrobatics and absurd situations entertain the audience: The well-behaved but fearless circus artist Minimi lets herself be seduced by the strong and charismatic Roquecyle to join daring “feats” on his unicycle. While doing so they have to go through thick and thin. Great fun with a lot of irony.

  • ARS SALTANDI Company

    Germany

    NOW – with dance, acrobatics and acting to the sound of cello music, the 9 artists of ARS SALTANDI present a performance about courage. It is about stepping out of one’s “gaps” and constraints, about daring the first step – towards each other, away from each other or as a dive into the unknown. By using large blocks, they constantly create new images and action spaces for their dance acrobatic movement-poetry.

  • Cia La Tal

    Spain

    Cia La Tal presents comedic and absurd street theatre. A theatre director and his assistants want to build on great show successes with The Incredible Box, but to achieve this they have to struggle with a few adversities. Extravagant, absurd and very funny!

  • Bobby Garden

    Germany

    BREAKDOWN COMPILATION is the name of Bobby Garden’s show. Where the dumb is leading, the smart is following. The audience is brought together through what they have in common: their capacity to laugh and to fail. A mix of smooth acrobatics and unexpected comedy – on a slack rope.

  • Maxmaber Orkestar

    Italy

    The band Maxmaber Orkestar comes from Trieste, where Eastern Europe meets the Mediterranean. Because of that their music is very exciting. Vocals, accordion, saxophone, violin, guitar and drums either sound Italian-melancholic or present klezmer and gypsy music as well as Balkan dances. Happiness meets melancholy.

    Austria

    The Trio Cobario started with street music in Barcelona in 2016 and they have been inviting spectators to close their eyes and go on a journey together ever since.

    France

    Eric Tarantola surprises his audience with extraordinary instruments: A drumset of casseroles, an alarm clock thumb piano or “Guitanjo”, a mixture of guitar and banjo.

  • La Serenissima Filage

    Italy
