When? April 2016 (dates tbc)
What? A fornight-long celebration of contemporary circus arts.
Where? The Parc de la Villette
A two-week festival celebrating circus and hip-hop at La Villette, Hautes Tensions is now in its sixth edition after five very successful years, mixing dancers and performers and surpassing all clichés of bling and bad language, red noses and rubber chickens.
Expect innovative performances from a dozen or so circus groups, as well as multiple workshops and masterclasses for children and adults of all levels of experience. The festival’s star is only rising, and 2016 promises much more of the same fun.
Ticket sales open in January 2016, here.
