Festival Maravee Circus 2023 – Spettacolo Montereale, ph. Renato Patat


Ironic, explosive and daring: from 22 June to 27 July  the Maravee Festival rekindles the spotlight on the circus values of empathy, inclusive transversality and combinability, to solicit the wonder of emotional involvement!

Through five different shows and a photography exhibition, Maravee Circus 2023 puts the figure of the Clown at the “center of the stage” — the most suitable for showing how to manage the unexpected and reinventing everyday life.

An energy explosion, which will kick off on Thursday 22 June at 21 in Montereale Valcellina, at the Museum of the former hydroelectric power plant “Antonio Pitter” in Malnisio, with the show “Circus Energy”, which in his exploratory path contemplates an exhibition in which the different faces of humanity stretch the emotional threads between disguise and lyricism.

“With this new landing in Montereale Valcellina, thanks to the interest and support of the Municipality – says the director of the Festival Sabrina Zannier – Maravee reconfirms its twenty-year propensity to enhance historical and naturalistic locations through contemporary entertainment and art. Each time by staging their specific architectural and functional identities, with the intention of activating an intriguing dialogue between the past and the present”.
