Le Grand Cirque Burleske
Sunday- 18H00 - Park Alta Vila

The culmination of the CIRCOagitado project will be an immersive show about the history of the circus in Portugal, the synergy between local and international artists, from traditional to contemporary, and fantastic illusionism, the 21st century brand.
From the saltimbancos of Berber and Saharis roots from Morocco, who traveled by wagon from the Djemaa el-Fna square in Marrakech and spread in the great cosmopolitan cities and then in the most recondite villages of our country at the end of the 19th century, passing through the spectacles burlesque casinos in the early 20th century.
From the evocation of the golden age of the 50s, the decadence of the circus in the late 1980s and its return to strength in recent years, with the birth of the contemporary circus, by merging with dance, design and abstract. Finally the controversy about the abolition of animals in the circus and the emergence of creative industries, such as the circus of Soleil, giants of illusionism and milestones of the new generations.
