• spettacolo di clownerie nell'anfiteatro di gardonè in val di fiemme trentino

A week of clowning

From 22 to 27 July the clowning starts. The funniest, most comic,  twirly week of  summer. The shows take place in the open air amphitheatre, not far from the Predazzo-Gardonè bubble car. You are at a height of 1650 m in the mountains, at Gardonè: 15 minutes from Predazzo, in Val di Fiemme, in the Trentino Dolomites, UNESCO Patrimony.

For six whole days the circus comes to the mountains.

The circus always seems inaccessible but, as  Jo and Zop explain, you need to be trained. Before and after the shows you can take a walk along 3 easy paths for families and children: the Dragon Forest, the Distracted Shepherd’s path and the Geotrail Dos Capèl.

In the morning you can watch the shows and in the afternoon learn how to do things in the workshops!

In the circus there is rhythm, balance and collaboration. All these are essential values in the mountains. During the week of clowning, on the MontagnAnimata (AnimatedMountain) there are numbers where balancing, clowning, music and improvisation dominate.

Acrobatics, agility, years and years of hard training are needed to be physically agile and supple.

Just thinking about the circus makes you feel happy.

Welcome back Prof. Drache

Sunday 22 July
Above the Predazzo-Gardonè bubble car
at 11 a.m. (first performance), at 2.30 p.m. (second performance)
The travelling show in the Dragon Forest lasts an hour and a quarter (1.15 hrs) and is an easy walk
with Nicola Sordo

Of course he is not your normal university professor. He does not enjoy being in class or have chalk and red pens in his pocket!  He only feels at home amidst nature. He is a great miming expert (He regularly holds training courses for chameleons from all over the world) he’ll come and look for you in the Dragon Forest to give his lessons on ‘applied dragonology’. He will test you out by making you do funny experiments  like a mad scientist with his strange instruments. If you want to become a real dragonologist, wear your light weight hiking shoes and go to discover the winged creatures of Gardoné!

One is serious and precise (AL-Katraz), the other a bit dumb and distracted (AL-Bicocca). The Al brothers stage a show that combines juggling and comic verve at a furious pace. They certainly don’t have time to waste.

Make way for the Nanirossi! Acrobatics, juggling virtuosity and amazing feats. A unique show, for the first time at high altitude. You’ll be amazed by their lightness, elegance and precision. They are dwarves, they are red, they are enchanting. Some of you may be tempted to play with them.

At 11 performance in amphitheatre
At 2.30 p.m. workshop for children
with Mr. Moustache

Are you ready to meet Mr. Moustache? He’s a little eccentric, comical and weird. He moves through bizarre ideas and clumsy solutions in a painful series of hitches, blunders and strange insights. Caution: laughter is contagious. If you add a dash of poetry, it will seem surreal.



Juggling Workshop

Thursday 26 July
Above the Predazzo-Gardonè bubble car
at 11 a.m. and 2.30 p.m, juggling  workshops for children with the Scuola di Circo Bolla di Sapone (Circus School)

The circus always seems inaccessible. But this time it is within everybody’s reach.

The circus always seems unreachable. On the Latemar it will be accessible to everyone. The kids from the Soap Bubble Circus School in Trento will guide you through unfamiliar exercises to experience the world of juggling and acrobatics. Those who are more curious will discover the secrets of these fascinating arts.


Friday 27 July
Above the Predazzo-Gardonè bubble car
at 11 a.m., performance in the amphitheatre
At 2.30 p.m. workshop for children
with Omphaloz

Mute, imaginative: a romantic trip for two. On the stage is the story of a couple, from the difficulty of understanding each other to the complicity that comes from harmony. From a slap given by mistake to a stolen kiss. Pure poetry, bare reality.
