Congratulations to the Winners of the 4th Iberoamerican Circus Festival, FIRCO

Diego Salles featured on a FIRCO posterThe results are in! FIRCO 2021, the “after-pandemic” edition, took place this October.¬†The festival is an exhibition of Iberoamerican talent at the Teatro Price, centering Madrid as a¬†home base for the circus arts and supporting new Iberoamerican artists. This year’s festival was particularly special, as it signified to many the return of the circus¬†industry and celebrated art for art’s sake. At the beginning of the month, each participant was judged by a specialized jury. The jury evaluated the participants for First, Second, and Third Prize, as well as a few more awards! After a thorough¬†display of circus, strength, and artistry at the festival’s gala,¬†the winners have been announced. CircusTalk would like to extend our congratulations to each of the following award recipients!
