It is the human will believing in the infinity of the human capacity inherited from generations to generation that has been able to save or even renew and update the circus art for hundreds of years. The reason of the launch of the International Circus Festival in Budapest twenty-two years ago was the decision, the will and the trust in this art of a group of professionals. I raise my hat to the photos of the ancestors thanking for the commitment of all former heads, directors, artists and supporters devoted to the circus art. The respect of the past and the maintenance of our ancestors' excellence can only help us to renew, re-interpret and update the miracle called circus art.
Twenty-four years ago, the decision, will and faith of a group of professionals started the Budapest International Circus Festival. We have a deep respect for the predecessors and thank all the previous leaders, circus directors, artists, and dedicated supporters for circus art!
Only respecting the past and preserving the merits of our ancestors can help us renew, reinterpret, refresh this miracle we call circus art. Tradition is a must: in 2020, the Festival Organizing Committee will strive to establish a world-class event that can be one of the tops of the world’s circus festivals. This commitment is essential to make our dream come true: to gather the knowledge we need to start building the National Circus Arts Center!
