CIRKéZIK comes back for its 8th edition to establish itself in St Colomb-de-Lauzun during the weekend of the 20th and 21st of May 2016, offering a free, nice and friendly event.
It will gather, during one night and one day, non-professional and professional artists with a common goal: to pass their love of the street arts ! This touring festival of the Communauté de Communes of Lauzun offers, like each year, with many organisations of the Lot-et-Garonne like BASTID’Art, a common project with circus arts working groups, latino dances introductions, a springboard and professional shows. The goal is to create a link between cultural actors and the inhabitants around the project, to let them discover emergent local artists through quality shows in a rural area.
The Festival opening is on Friday the 20th of May at 9:00pm under the circus tent with the show « En pleine mer » of the Théâtre de la Gargouille, a burlesque show which “dives” us into the universe of Buster Keaton and Chaplin, but also in an absurd world like the Monty Pythons’s one, 10 euros for adults and free for those under 12.
Saturday 21st of May :
- Saturday is an entirely free day which will begin at 10:00am with the Compagnie Théâtre de la Gargouille and its all audience show « Clown d’Air », followed by the establishment of giant old wood games for all from 11:00am, a circus initiation animated under the circus tent by the Cie Théâtre de la Gargouille and a dance initiation(salsa, boca, …) by the association Ribambelle at 11:10a.m.
- The inauguration and its inaugural aperitif will be at 12:15p.m, and the Déjeuner des Champs at 12:30pm.
