THE City Council of CAMARGO presents the first FESTIVAL international of street circus , CIRCAM which will be held the first weekend of September, on Friday 2, Saturday 3 and Sunday 4, at times ranging from 13:00 hours until 22:30 o'clock.

Camargo has some optimal spaces and is a unbeatable frame for enjoying these first level shows starring by international companies not usually in their schedules. With this initiative, Camargo is located on the world map of the performing arts filling a gap in the cultural range since, although some circus festivals are conducted in other cities in Spain and Europe, Camargo will offer, premiere, the first circus festival on the street in its history. The selected artists and shows have been winners in other competitions, occupying billboards and filling festivals in Paris, London, Berlin, San Francisco, Montreal, etc. The shows will cover disciplines of new circus and will combinate with dance, street, facilities, music theatre and will be suitable for all audiences. The selected companies come both of our province (in support and commitment to the local companies), national and international.

The Organization, coordination and artistic direction of the festival is run by the Cantabrian company ARTE EN ESCENA, whose artistic director is Marta López Mazorra, than with his career and that of his team - artists, directors, programmers and cultural managers-, will bring the best professionals and shows of the time. The work, the vocation and its professionalism intend to offer the enjoy of the culture and the performing arts, to relax, stimulate and connect with the public and the artists and to make that this festival will be gradually a reference to national level.

Camargo will offer, for the first time, a festival specializing in street circus and with no cost for people, so that people can enjoy in a different way the common daily spaces - squares, streets and parks - transformed by the circus arts professionals. In addition, Camargo committs to performing arts and, in this case, specifically for circus, because it covers a number of disciplines of individual development that combine movement, knowledge, emotion, expression, physicality, sensitivity, control and the ability to express themselves in the surrounding medium taking the people to participation. These are strong bases for the development of people as subjects and an evolution in the scope and development of the human being, of the education and the culture.

Many times the idea is that capitals or large cities are who must host important cultural events, but fortunately, there are already many and different examples in which other nuclei of population, both in the rest of Europe as in our country, hosts once a year important competitions or festivals that generate a great cultural dynamism , as it occurs also in economics and tourism.

So, the 1st Festival of Circus of Camargo, CIRCAM is configured as an event of and for their citizens, offering a rich cast of national and international artists and that covers a set of showsin the street composed by a wide range of artistic specialties.


CIRCAM, Circus and Camargo, takes care of all the details. The logotype represents the circus and contains the colors of Camargo's flag, as well as the figure of one of the statues of the Constitution Square, one of the most emblematic and populated of Maliaño, that is is located together with another, framing a great scenario. In this way, it becomes an artistic symbol outdoors. Also it has be inntended to make a wink to the eight villages included in Camargo, represented in the juggling games that made the statue with color balls.
