The 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!

CircusTalk would like to extend our congratulations to each of the following award recipients!
