Circus: From Afghanistan to Monte Carlo

During the first part of the afternoon, we will focus on a serious aspect of circus – that of providing happiness and therapy for children. Drawing on film clips from 2019, we share the joyful story of children in Afghanistan who have been learning circus skills. Given the current situation in the country, the footage of children being happy and learning skills is particularly moving and poignant.

During the second part of the afternoon, we will lighten the mood and enjoy some of the breath-taking, glamorous circus performances from people across the world – especially at the Monte Carlo Circus Festival.
