The Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain [World Festival of the Circus of Tomorrow] was to be back from January 27 to 30, 2022, on the Reuilly Pitch at Cirque Phénix. It has been eventually cancelled and postponed. As a matter of fact, regarding the health requirements of the Covid pandemic and the international feature of the event, this 42nd edition included too many likely restrictions.

Every year, Paris gets crazy under the big top of the Cirque Phénix for the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain [World Festival of the Circus of Tomorrow]. The 42nd edition - that was to be held from January 27 to 30, 2022 - has been once more cancelled. As a matter of fact, the event gathering several talents from all over the world for an uncommon competition must cancel the 2022 edition.

Alain M. Pacherie decided to postpone this 42nd edition to 2023 (January 26 to 29) over the Covid pandemic, following an extraordinary general assembly. In a release, he says: "We studied at length all the parameters at our disposal and we came to the difficult conclusion that it was necessary to postpone the holding of our event for the second consecutive year".

Because of its international feature, it was impossible for the artists and the international audience to hold a complete vaccinal pass including 3 doses, as the health authorithies are now requiring, standards being not the same in all countries. To prevent half a show, the decision has been made to postpone it.

For the record, the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain was born in 1977 and since then, it never stopped revealing the best of circus arts across the world. It discovers and puts a light on artists from all horizons, whether they come from great circus families, higher school or they are simple self-taught artists.

Young artist under 25 years old and coming from all over the globe gathering for this major event: France, Canada, China, Ethiopia, United-states, Russia, Ukraine, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Mongolia, Brazil, Spain, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Vietnam, Turkey as well as Japan, Puerto Rico, Colombia or Venezuela make shine the colors of a young, inventive, pluridisciplinary and strong circus. Come along and discover circus acts among the best in the world.

These young people face off each other for 4 days under the watchful eyes of thousands of spectators, hundreds of professionals and inflexible jury members who will name the stars of tomorrow. Precision, virtuosity and grace will decide between these artists who will devote 100% of themselves to the festival. A festival that perhaps will change their lives.

In other words, you will have to wait for tomorrow to discover tomorrow's talents...
