Program Overview

The Winterfest celebrates its 16th anniversary – also because Winterfest founder Georg Daxner always overcame obstactles and believed in possibilities and ideas. The confidence in the own will, the motivation to accomplish  the seemingly impossible and an almost inexhaustible world of imagination – numerous artists will tell us about this in their program this winter. Spectacular Circus, combined with Canadian woodcutter charm (Cirque Alfonse), puristic, perfect acrobatics by a new generation of Australian artists (Gravity & Other Myths) and a clownesque French gem in their own tent (Cie Sacékripa) await you at the Winterfest. In the two-day Kaleidoskop we also show a small, fine cross-section through the Austrian Circus scene. The bridge between the international companies and the young people from Salzburg (MOTA) build young Austrians, who have fulfilled their dream “Circus artist” at European Circus Schools (Young Artists).
