The show Paraíso pintado has won the Zirkòlika prize for the Best Circus Show of the Hall or Tent of 2017. It was premiered during the Grec Festival 2016 and directed by Ferruccio Cainero. It deals with the drama of migrations and is a call to not sit still before any injustice.
The jury has valued the control of the rhythm of the artist, the staging of the show, the great talent of the clown on stage and a socially committed work that shakes consciences and offers impressive images.
The prizes have been awarded at the Raluy Historical Circus after the Night of Circus show.
Since its creation, in 2010, the Night of Circus has become an appointment for the entire sector. Its objective is to promote the circus and at the same time dignify and contribute to the professionalization of the sector and the artists and companies of the Catalan circus.
