The fantastic world of Circus is back in the Taquaruçu district. Clowns, jugglers, contortionists, acrobats, trapeze artists and many other circus professionals were received with great energy by the public in the official opening program of the Taquaruçu Circus Festival, which took place on Thursday night, 30th.
Instead of speeches , masters of ceremonies and other formalities, the program was filled with lots of laughter, applause, enchantment and laughter. With a presentation by the clown and founder of Circo Os Kaco, Kadu Oliviê, the attractions were announced one by one with excerpts of presentations, performances and interventions that will be in the arena until next Sunday, 30th. From Goiás directly to the Festival, the artists of Corpo Circense Basileu França took turns on stage with the presentation of the show Cartolagem, which raised the audience present with a lot of interactivity and good humor. According to the coordinator of the Basileu França School of Circus, Rodrigo Mallet, the proposal is to show the strength of the circus and enhance the art of the North and Midwest. “Bringing our artists to a Festival of this magnitude, independent, that works with Permaculture, is very important for us to connect with this force of circus art in the North and Midwest of the country”, said Mallet, who participated in the Festival in 2020, in online format and returned to the face-to-face presentation for the first time. The night ended with a musical presentation by the group Imaginário Mundo, which presented original songs combined with performance scenes. “I already participated in the Festival as an audience and I was always delighted with this work and believed that our project always had a lot to do with the Circus Festival. Fortunately, for the first time, we are integrated into this team and the universe conspired to make this dream come true, which is art, resistance and a lot of entertainment” , said musician Fábio Brancco, the band’s vocalist.
