The Mirabilia International Circus and Performing Arts Festival in the last edition counted 80,000 admissions in five days of programming to over 5000 tickets sold, 49 companies, 230 artists, over 100 Italian and international professionals and programmers from 15 different countries (Italy, Belgium, Canada , Spain, France, Germany, Argentina, Japan, Chile, Brazil, Sweden, the Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Slovakia and Croatia).
This is only the most visible part of a larger annual process, composed by artistic residencies and support for Italian and European companies, and by a continuous networking with other European countries.
In past years the festival has explored the boundaries between languages, supporting, co-producing and hosting in residence many companies that a few years later were part of the festival program as: TorinoDanza, Teatro a Corte, RomaEuropa and in main theaters and festivals worldwide. This happened thanks to projects, partnerships and European networks of which the festival is part.
Moreover Fossano, along with Paris, Strasbourg, Barcelona, London, Porto/Guimaraes, Brussels, Stockholm, is one of the co-organizers and the focal points of the Contemporary European Circus Season event which sees, from 01/06/2016 to 31/07/2017 over 20 countries with companies of contemporary circus with the support of the European Community.
