Festival du Cirque de Demain
A cross between Britain’s Got Talent and Cirque du Soleil, the Festival du Cirque de Demain showcases – and pits against one another – the rising superstars of the circus scene.
Although still relatively under the radar, for the last four decades the circus arts bonanza has been a springboard for the next generation of performers – and catapulted countless to global fame. And the hotly contested 39th edition promises to up the ante with 24 gravity-defying acts (handpicked out of 1,000 hopefuls) from around the globe set to vie for the coveted crown in front of a panel of gimlet-eyed industry vets, and a thousand-strong audience in Paris. The sprightly lot will not only have to meet the judges’ exacting standards, but crank up the showmanship to woo the crowds.
Tickets can now be booked for the not-to-miss 40th edition!
