CirkusMania: Stockholm’s new circus festival February 7–16 2020
Stockholm’s circus sphere has evolved at lightning speed in recent decades. Botkyrka’s investment into the circus arts has made the region internationally known as one of the world’s most exciting circus hubs, mentioned in the same breath as Montreal, Toulouse and Barcelona. Today, Stockholm University of the Arts is a central place for driving the field’s artistic development forward, with bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in circus. Since the beginning of this millennium, hundreds of circus artists have grown out of Botkyrka and Stockholm’s fertile intercultural circus soil to then blossom and meet their audience – often abroad.
