Circ Bover was created in Sineu (Mallorca) in 2005 with the aim of making circus known in the Balearic Islands, because up until that moment it was fairly non-existent. It began as the first nomadic circus in the Balearic Islands, with contemporary circus performances, where live music, theatre and dance came together. An unprecedented cultural phenomenon, the company became well known all around the Islands, since the company had the support of both the cultural sector and the audience in the Balearic Islands. Circ Bover has created outdoor and indoor shows which have taken the company all around the world; the company has received national and international awards for its performances and its career.
The company also runs CIRCAIRE, a circus festival in Alcúdia (Mallorca) and the yearlong circus programme CIRCART in Pollença (Mallorca).
Circ Bover has its own circus centre, LA CIRQUERA, which combines several aspects: show programming, circus school, training venue, etc. La Cirquera hosts the educational programme DISCOVER CIRCUS, an activity designed for schools in Mallorca which welcomes 4,000 students every year.
The company’s career and experience in outlining and managing several artistic projects strengthen Circ Bover’s intention to go one step further and implement this training programme, which will pave the way for a research and support centre for contemporary circus which focuses on creation.
