Southern Sweden Circus Festival

2023 - 

Cirkus Syd, in collaboration with Malmö City and Lund’s Municipality,  is developing a new biannual circus festival. The festival’s aim is to act as a catalyst for a bigger and broader development of the circus arts in Malmö and Lund, and on a regional level.


In September 2023 we gave Skåne a tease of what is to come with a 4 day kick-off. This work was all about learning and developing a sustainable and strategic foundation for the festival's continued life and growth into a Skåne-wide festival


The premier of Southern Sweden Circus Festival will happen in September 2024, and we are looking for collaborators!

2021 - 2023

Circosonic is a CS project under the Circus Thinkers Platform where we explore circus as sound dimension.


The circus' sonic world is rich and varied, from subdued footfalls on sawdust to the roar of the crowd. The sound of the traditional circus is something most of us can imagine. But how does contemporary circus sound?
