  • Program Saturday 20 July

    • 15Feet6
      • 15Feet6 (B) - Dynamite & Poetry
      • 15Feet6 is an international circus collective of four artists with different backgrounds and training. For the creation of 'Dynamite & Poetry' they used a seesaw, a Chinese mast and a lot of ideas that strangely have never been done before... This resulted in an acrobatic performance with an absurd touch. Explosive circus for young and old.

      • 14u till 14u35
    • Teatro Metarmofoso
      • Circusdrome (NL) - Teatro Metamorfoso
      • You will witness firsthand how the stunningly beautiful Ludmilla transforms into a frightening big gorilla. Nostalgic fun fair entertainment that has no equal! Teatro Metamorfoso capitalizes on the ineradicable need to get carried away in sentiment. We want to believe in something. This proves the truth to be an elastic concept. We have become so accustomed to the lie that it has planted itself into our genes. We enjoy it and the liar gets applauded.

        For people of 8 years and older.

      • 16u till 17u30
      • 18u till 19u
    • Cie Sacékripa
      • Cie Sacékripa (F) - Marée Basse
      • In a small circus tent we meet two acrobats on the moment of the 'marée basse' (at low tide, in between two movements). The characters are somewhat burlesque and they manipulate objects in a jerkily but very precise way. A beautiful and intimite show that really gets to you.

        For people of 8 years and older!

        Attention! There are only a limited number of seats for this show. You can book your tickets untill 18 July by sending an e-mail to info@bruggeplus.be, or you can drop by at the information desk on the festival.

    • Cirque Democratique de la Belgique
      • Cie Pol & Freddy (B) - Le Cirque Démocratique de la Belgique
      • Le Cirque Démocratique de la Belgique is very Belgian and so very democratic show: you can vote and decide on both form and content. Through what you decide, this cabaret show can take any possible shape, from a juggling act with a 24-piece service to a 12 ft high dive in a 12 inch deep pool. A humouristic research for the boundaries of democracy and the dictatorial tendencies of the majority.

      • 14u50 till 15u50
    • Circ Panic
      • Circ Panic (E/CAT) - L'home que perdía els botons
      • 'L'home que perdía els botons' (the man who lost his buttons) shows a man and a mast that can move horizontally as well as vertically. That is all you need for a poetic and acrobatic show that will keep you on the edge of your seat for 40 minutes.

    • Le Cirque Ilya
      • Le Cirque Ilya (F) - Les frères Panini: épisode 2
      • Bénito and Giovanni are back in town! The ingredients to their new masterpiece? A pile of Chinese plates, a giant gambling game, some juggling, a few acrobatic tricks and a very special guest. 'Episode 2' even contains a bit of opera... But where has the diva gone?

      • 17u10 till 18u10
    • Paki Paya
      • Cie PakiPaya (E/CAT) - Shake Shake Shake
      • The very handsome Tony is on a quest for the ideal partner in a crazy show with a Chinese mast and trapeze. Extravagant circus with a bit of craziness to the rhythm of catching disco beats.

    • Vaiven circus
      • Vaivén Circo (E) - Do not disturb
      • A day out of the seemingly boring life of four factory workers. They work hard at the assembly of a big machine.

What you see next is a catching mix of acrobatics, dance, humour and manipulation of beautiful pieces of scenery.

    • Carré Curieux
      • Carré Curieux (B) - Entre Nous

    • Lady Cocktail
      • Cie Lady Cocktail (B) - Les filles du 2ième
      • A humouristic trapeze show. How does the nearly psychopatic Mademoiselle Betty react to the many mistakes her fellow workers make, the hyperkinetic and crazy Paule and the absent-minded Sara?
        Get carried away by these three charmismatic ladies high up in the sky.

      • Two clowns escaped the circus. Their mission? To make everyone smile. They employ all possible means: juggling, dancing, magic and a lot of positive energy. A wonderful classic street art performance with a salutary effect on jaw and stomach muscles.

But even in the world of circus they are quickly climbing the ladder of success. The Swedish Magmanus Company introduces you to a small and nervous acrobate and a gigantic and simple yet moving juggler. Together they put up a warm circus performance that will leave you speechless. Bollywood juggling, frightening jumps on the seesaw and balancing acts in all directions.

Productions en Zonen (B) - De Eigenlijke Eigenaar van Brugge 

The host of our festival is the "actual owner of Bruges" and his current flame: Ginette from paris. He is an important man. Although nobody knows him, he is the actual owner of Bruges. He doesn't often make public appearances but he gladly made an exception for Cirque Plus. With a speaker around his waist he brings some nice background music. Ginette from Paris is a charming show girl who used to perform in a Paris circus and so she fits right in at our festival.

Diabolos are flying through the air, you balance flower sticks, juggle with three (or more) balls and maybe try a unicycle. And who is brave enough to try a clown's bike? And if possible you walk bairfooted on broken glass or you will get a folding balloon.
