ABOUT

Honourable mention and respect for the ancestors!

The art of circus has been kept alive for centuries, thanks to those people who believed that the human performance has no limit, and they managed to maintain this conception for generations. Twenty-five years ago a group of professionals led by István Kristóf created the Budapest International Circus Festival. We have high respect for our ancestors, and we would like to thank all the former leaders, circus directors, artists and supporters dedicated to circus arts for their work and commitment! We can only renew, refresh and reinterpret this miracle,what we call circus art, with the respect for the past and preservation of the merits of our ancestors.

We were also open during the pandemic!

All circuses in Europe, apart from the Capital Circus of Budapest, shut down when the pandemic broke out. However, the management of the Capital Circus of Budapest took a bold step: several times a week, it entertained the audience with live broadcasts, giving hope and faith not only to them but to all those working in circus arts as well. More than a hundred Hungarian circus artists performed in the show of four different themes named ‘Dynasties’ in the Capital Circus of Budapest. The premiere performances of the plays of ‘Dynasties’ of the Capital Circus of Budapest were held online. They were not only followed by the audience, but many circuses from abroad also celebrated with us. The world was paying attention to Hungary, since the Capital Circus of Budapest was the only one to provide work to the circus artists, and to entertain the Hungarian audience, complying with the epidemiological measures in force.

We are planning a new school!

The Imre Baross Artist Training Institute, which looks back on a seventy-year history, provides a uniquely high-quality training for artists, actors and background professionals. In order to continue to create a new supply of Hungarian circus art, a new school building is needed to satisfy all needs.
