At the heart of the festival is Circus Siamsa, a variety show, held each year in Siamsa Tíre theatre. This year, as every year, an entirely new show has been created by Fanzini Productions for the good people of Tralee and beyond, bringing the stars of contemporary circus, street and variety performance to the stage in Siamsa. It’s a family show but not just for kids! This year handpicked acts from UK, Germany, Catalunya, Brazil, Spain and Galway will come for one day to thrill, delight and amaze the lucky audiences who are there to witness this unique spectacle! This show is a highlight of the festival and not to be missed! “It’s circus Jim but not as we know it.”

The National Circus Festival of Ireland will once again roll out their Junior Reviewers Programme for this years festival. The aim of the Junior Reviewers programme is to involve young people from age 6 and up to watch shows and performances with a critical eye, to engage in discussion and to feel confident and competent to write their views, opinions and suggestions. With encouragement and support from the National Circus Festival team of producers and performers and with the assistance of parents/guardians this programme will improve capacity for critical thinking, encouraging young people to question what they see and to create the type of art, performance and culture they would like to see. After the Friday (Nov 10th) night show Svalbard Company’s All Genius All Idiot and after both editions of Circus Siamsa on Saturday (Nov 11th) young people will be invited to spend some time writing their reviews of the shows in the foyer of Siamsa Tire Theatre. Keep an eye out for our Junior Reviewers and be nice – they are the critics of the future!!!!
(Saturday) 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
