Circus as an art form welcomes and needs cross discipline art forms to flourish within the contemporary performance arts sector. The aim of the festival is to educate artists and the public in what circus is, what it can be, and what Cork can offer to the world.
Running over 3 weekends Pitch'd Circus Arts Festival will be teaming up with local festivals, Sounds From a Safe Harbour, Cork Comedy Festival and Cork Folk Festival to offer an eclectic programme of live events and workshops celebrating the diversity and cross discipline approach that circus has to offer. We will also be hosting family activities in the oldest part of our city where we will put on some good old fashioned free street theatre plus youth workshops and more.
