The Central European Circus Art Association has been established

Circus artists from ten countries unanimously voted to establish the Central European Circus Art Association on the final day of the Neighbouring Circus show at the Capital Circus of Budapest.

The Central European Circus Art Association (CECA) was established at a ceremony in the Capital Circus of Budapest on March 19, 2017. The founding members – mainly circus artists and representatives of the background trades actively involved in the circus arts, such as dancers, musicians, technical staff, directors and circus managers – decided in connection with the success of the Neighbouring Circus show at the Capital Circus of Budapest that there is indeed a need for an organisation that represents the Central European regional interests of circus art. The statutes were adopted under the motto and goal “Unity, respect and acceptance of each other’s art”. Circus art is a branch of the arts that pushes people’s ability to the limits in their performance, which carries and expresses social issues. The planned new national circus centre in Budapest is intended to serve the Central European region as well.

The new Association has applied for admission to the two large international organisations, the Fédération Mondiale du Cirque and the European Circus Association, accepting their programmes as guiding principles for itself. All circus artists, people working in the background trades connected with the circus arts and circus sponsors who are actively involved in the Central European circus region can become members of the newly formed Association.

The founding members include artists and circus experts from Austria, Italy, Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia and Hungary. The members of the executive board are Adriana Folco Knie (Italy/Austria), Viktor Yarov (Ukraine), Manfred Kannacher (Germany) and János Mátyás “Arkan” Hunyadi (Romania). The ministerial commissioner and director of the Capital Circus of Budapest, Péter Fekete, was elected president of the Association by the General Assembly.
