The Paradise Painted show of the company Pepa Plana won the ‘Zirkòlika’ Award for the Best Circus of Sala or Carpa show in 2017. Released during the Grec Festival 2016 and directed by Ferruccio Cainero, it addresses the migration drama and it is a call not to sit still before any injustice.
The jury valued the control of the artist’s rhythm, the staging of the show, the great talent of the clown above the stage and a socially committed task that shakes awareness and offers impressive images.
The awards were given at the Raluy Historical Circus after the Night Circus show.
Since its creation, in 2010, Circus Night 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 of the artists and companies of the Catalan circus.
