Circus Feast 2019

The World at Our Feet


Pontio is very pleased to bring back its Gwledd Syrcas Feast for summer 2019 with the theme ... THE WORLD AT OUR FEET!

Contemporary circus has held an important place in Pontio's artistic programme for many years. From the beautiful BIANCO by No Fit State back in 2013, which went on to our the world, to Pirates of the Carabina's FLOWN in 2015 and 2017's Colombian extravaganza ACELERE we've aimed to bring you the best in contemporary circus shows.

This time, we welcome Circus Abyssinia from Ethiopia with their stunning circus production, Ethiopian Dreams. Expect a fun family show full of acrobatic daring and dance - a perfect way to start the summer holidays.

The Circus Feast will also provide inspiration to three artists in residence: the recent graduates from Coleg Menai Foundation Art and Design course will have access to performances, rehearsals and workshops, providing them with a unique opportunity to document the sights and sounds of this contemporary circus extravaganza. Their artwork will be exhibited in the glass case and screen situated in Pontio's public spaces during the feast and throughout August.
