About

  

Mirabilia is not only an international festival of circus and performing arts.

Every year awareness and attention grow, the public  follows us, in our journey to discover new perspectives of contemporary creation.
We can host more and more contemporary shows, counting on the welcoming of this territory.

Mirabilia does not program shows tout court, but along with many Italian and international artists and programmers build strategies to support the creation throughout the year, programming world and italian premieres, otherwise impossible to host in Italy.
Unreleased performances, sometimes fragile, not to be missed.

THE CONTEMPORARY CREATION

The festival is just a part of our work, which throughout the year supports the attention to contemporary creation.

In addition to coproductions, Mirabilia has had in 2014 two international companies in residence – Iona Kewney and Nacho Flores – both graduates CircusNext.

On the agenda, among other events,  there are the 17th Fira Mediterrània de Manresa (institutional partners), the working groups between 59 members from 21 countries of the General Meeting of Circostrada in Paris, the participation of more than 200 professionals from around the world at Focus Cirque organized by the Institut Francais and the pitching of Circa – Festival du cirque actuel for the presentation of Italian companies, the presence as members of the jury7 to Japanese Daidogei World Cup (one of the major festivals of performing arts in Asia) and the General Meeting of Platform CircusNext.
