VeCircOnda – is a title encompassing the “VE” that represents the profound link with the city of Venice, the “CIRCO” (circus) which is a clear reference to the chosen theme, and the “ONDA” (wave) that emphasises the extraordinary nature of a production that originates from and lives on the waves. The intention is to consecrate this extraordinary creative power that is capable of going not only beyond the limits of the Big Top, but also of time. To tell all this, we will virtually put it in the hands of Federico Fellini, a great lover and enthusiast of the circus, whose films on many occasions narrate the story of this magical world. It will be Fellini himself to come on stage at Cannaregio, a film set that will be composed piece by piece in front of the audience. Lights …Camera … Action … the circus enters the city.
To watch and enjoy the event, we invite you to find a spot along the Fondamenta del Rio di Cannaregio. We recommend to arrive and find a spot adequately ahead of time. Spectators with poor mobility or those with prams or strollers, etc. should avoid crowded areas. One-way systems or other modifications to pedestrian traffic may be introduced.
