Biennale Internationale des Arts du Cirque
The Biennale Internationale des Arts du Cirque (BIAC) is quickly becoming an essential event for circus professionals from around the world and it plays a key role in developing the international contemporary circus scene, while also contributing to the economic activity of our territory.
One of the main attractions for audiences during the first two editions of the biennale was the Tent Village in Marseille. This installation, located beside the sea, will once again be the heart of the event. At this remarkable site, you will be able to see the Welsh artists NoFit State Circus who were such a smash hit during the 2015 edition alongside seven other French and international companies who will present their latest creations.
We have travelled far and wide to find new companies that are revolutionizing the circus arts so we can offer audiences a magical, poetical, and spectacular 2019 Biennale Internationale des Arts du Cirque. The festival will feature 272 performances of 65 different shows, including 30 world premieres.
In 2017, the Biennale Internationale des Arts du Cirque attracted 112 000 people; for the 2019 edition, the Biennale team is eager to welcome even larger crowds, both in Marseille and across the region, and let them discover the creative marvels of the contemporary circus.
About Phare Circus
Phare Circus is more than a conventional acrobatic circus. The artists create and perform stories based on their own life experiences. Drawing from recent history, folklore and modern society, the artists blend drama, dance, live music and circus arts to share a part of their lives with audiences. The performers come from unimaginably difficult social and economic background. They discover and develop their skills at Phare Ponleu Selpak non-profit school. They are able to earn a good living and transform their lives at Phare Circus, breaking the cycle of poverty.
