A contortion is a spin, an alteration of the conventional shape that generates a new shape, an unpredictable one. Like the history of circus itself, a constant metamorphosis, an even more difficult one.
In this spirit the Contortions Festival is born, a contemporary circus festival organized by the Valencia City Hall in collaboration with the local associations of circus professionals. “Contorsions” sets forth to give people a more plural, eclectic and updated view over the art of circus.
