There were many interviews with Slava Polunin, world-famous clown during his career. In our selection, You can read about the beginnings, his worldview and art.

Csenge Jerabek and Szilvia Faludi are not unknown for the audience of the Capital Circus of Budapest, since the artists graduated from the Baross Imre Institute of Artist Education have already performed in the Circus Night of 2018 and in the art show of the institute, the Ludas Matyi in the circus show. In our Phoenix – Circus of Fire show they will amaze the audience until the 10th of March, while Szilvia Faludi will enchant the audience with a graceful aerial ring act.

The professionals proving themselves day by day behind the scenes of the circus always work in the background to make the miracles, the catharsis happen which keeps this art form alive. They devote their life to the wonder of circus and performing arts. Their devotion, humility, love of circus and professional skills are exemplary, the limits expand between their hands as the technical background of each artist production comes to existence, and the impossible is born.

Even if the premiere of the summer show of the Capital Circus of Budapest, the 20th of April is far away, we have already started the preparation for the Flying Circus.

The star of artists Benjámin Kassai and Ádám Fehér rises with an incredible speed. The young promising talents of the Hungarian circus art went to the same class in the Baross Imre Institute of Artist Education, where they quickly became friends and at the age of 14, after specialization, alone in the class they started to learn the mysteries of the Chinese pole which they find the most sympathetic. The twenty-one year old gifted artists became famous on the 12th Budapest Circus Festival, where the professional jury gave them Bronze award for their Chinese pole act.
