November 4, 2023 : At the heart of the festival is Circus Siamsa, a variety show, held each year in Siamsa Tíre theatre. This year, as every year, an entirely new show has been created by Fanzini Productions for the good people of Tralee and beyond, bringing the stars of contemporary circus, street and variety performance to the stage in Siamsa. It’s a family show but not just for kids! This year handpicked acts from Canada, Italy, Spain, Germany, Venezuela, Mallorca, France and Sligo will come for one day to thrill, delight and amaze the lucky audiences who are there to witness this unique spectacle! This show is a highlight of the festival and not to be missed! “It’s circus Jim but not as we know it.”

Clown showcase, „Der zeitgenössische Clown im Zirkus ist eine ausdrucksstarke Erfahrung, die das Publikum zu tiefen Emotionen bewegt.“
