First cycle of workshops: August/September 2013
They were held in all three countries and they were led by the instructor of the contemporary circus skills from the “Kapilotrakte” troupe (France). 20 young persons from each of these four cities took part in this. The workshops were aimed at mastering the skills of acrobatics, juggling, pantomime, acting, pyrotechnics and making of circus machines. The training session lasted for 10 days and afterwards, the participants presented their acquired knowledge and skills in the streets of Tirana, Varaždin and Novi Sad (during the Street Musicians Festival). The workshops for the youth from Gračanica commenced a bit later and the participants also presented themselves in Novi Sad, upon the completion of workshops.
