The Circus Festival YOUNG STAGE could not take place in 2020 due to the corona virus pandemic. Shortly before it took place, we unfortunately had to cancel the festival. However, it is not our style to just lay back and relax. We love circus projects, no matter what form, that’s why we built a spontaneous circus project for the summer within 2 weeks.
There have been no shows for months, circuses had to pause, professional artists had been unemployed for many months, a lot of families did not go on vacation this summer. In addition, the day-vacation offers were almost all booked out and the “Station Circus” in Basel had long been shut down.
We wanted to make an active and meaningful contribution to this situation, which serves everyone and since we can “do circus” best, we set up the YOUNG STAGE circus camps. 200 children were able to do circus for 2 weeks, were coached by real professionals, and at the end they were allowed to be part of the big final performances.
We had a lot of fun, the response was so huge and the feedback was absolutely overwhelming, so we plan to hold the circus camps every year from now on.
We will keep you up to date here and will inform you about the dates for 2021 as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for the support!
Such a project is not possible without financial support! We thank the following foundations – and all other foundations that would prefer to remain anonymous – for the spontaneous and generous commitment to support the YOUNG STAGE-CIRCUS-CAMPS!
