International Festival of New Circus

and Contemporary Clown

3rd - 9th August 2020

In its 13th edition, Klovnbuf Festival is set to deliver a vivid and highly visual mix of different languages of contemporary circus, an artform rarely seen in Slovenia. This year, deep into the summer, we are putting special focus on the art of juggling, showcasing a wide variety of some of most exciting local and international artists, presenting works-in-progress of young Slovenian creators, as well as public screenings of established international companies who could not travel to Slovenia due to the epidemic. Artistic residencies and masterclasses are also an important part of the festival. Apart from the top-notch mastery of contemporary circus, Klovnbuf brings what audiences have loved for centuries – the magic of shapes, the illusion that nurtures thought, a world so unique that it brings out the child within us who then asks for more. Come and give it a shot! The circus is stronger than the virus.
