This French-style circus is more about great spectacles than clowns and sad animals in cages, so it's not surprising that people like it so much here they even have a circus festival. The Biennale Internationale des Arts du Cirque was founded when the Marseille–Provence region was the European Capital of Culture in 2013, and the celebrations started with a big circus show. However, since it's a biennial event, the founders decided to do another festival – L'Entre-Deux Biennales runs throughout January. The French circus, having a wide range of expressive means, is at the crossroads of performing arts. It is an interesting mix of both sport and art with its acrobats, jugglers, light shows, mimes, street theatres, and of course flying dancers. And surely it's an unforgettable show, so grab the chance and visit one of these amazing festivals.
