Quoting Krisztián Kristóf:
“Circus means the mixture of wonder, miracle and fantasy coming to life for children. In the heart of the adults, it is mostly an old memory about a genial laugh which they can relive during the “FlyingCircus” show. I believe that our art can find the inner child of the adults and can take them back for a few hours to their best memories they have from their carefree childhood that they spent here in the City Park. Genial laugh can make wonders!”
