The International Circus Festival of Punta Brava in Puerto de la Cruz is another commitment of the city to merge contemporary and urban culture, which can be seen in every corner.
Who will participate in the International Circus Festival of Puerto de la Cruz
Professionals of the Circo Contemporáneo, made up of acrobats, tightrope walkers, jugglers, dancers, actors and street artists from Madrid, Barcelona and other countries, such as England or Italy come together this year 2018 at the terreno de lucha (wrestling arena) Santiago Yanes of Punta Brava to inaugurate the festival and culture season in Puerto de la Cruz.
The companies present will be Sinakt Circo Teatro Danza, Lost in Translation Circus, Nueveuno and Circ. Pistolet.
The company Sinakt Circo Teatro Danza offers a show that caricatures and satirizes the artificial models of the aristocratic class of the Baroque period. A trip back in time thanks to the circus.
This first edition of the Festival stands out because of the Hogwallops show by the British company Lost in Translation Circus, since it is one of the most successful works in the UK at the moment, whose theme is a humorous dramatization on the chaotic adventures of a dysfunctional family
A show by Compañía Nueveuno that features a reinterpretation by Leonardo DaVinci, combining dance, juggling, balance and technology.
Cuando no tocábamos con los pies en el suelo
Coming from Catalonia, CircPistolet closes the Festival with a trip back in time to childhood, through childhood memories. A show where acrobatics are the fundamental pillar of the work.
About the place where the Alios Festival will take place
The place chosen for this International Circus Festival is the coastal district of Punta Brava, in the facilities of the Canarian terreno de lucha (wrestling arena).
A neighborhood with a recent history that is becoming another focus for civic participation and enhancement of culture thanks to which the International Circus Festival has come here.
It is located very close to Loro Parque and a few meters away from the Playa Jardín complex, an environment designed by César Manrique.
Although most of the performances will take place within the Canarian wrestling arena, there will be free outdoor performances at Plaza Manuel Ballesteros in Punta Brava.
