The press wrote about C!CAF:

”C!CAF 2024 managed, just like in its first two versions, to navigate the here and now landscape of contemporary circus well (…) C!CAF has a strong focus on poetic-artistic expression but also has a keen eye for the contemporary relevance and audience engagement in both repertoire selection and the numerous side activities, which, in addition to the program at AFUK, also included artist talks after the performances. C!CAF contributes, like its larger outdoor festival colleagues in cities such as Odense, Helsingør, and Næstved, to once again convey current contemporary circus to a wider audience.” (Our translation, orig. Anne Liisberg, ISCENE, 2024)

grandiose performances, exciting workshops, and insightful artist talks” (Our translation, orig. Anna Kjærulf Hansen, magasinet kunst, 2024)

“The Contemporary Circus Festival C!CAF, held in Copenhagen, provided a fantastic insight into international contemporary circus at its very best… The best part is that it wasn’t just industry professionals, but also regular theater enthusiasts who attended the many sold-out performances” (Rie Hammer, ISCENE, 2022)

“This first edition of the festival began in the best of ways with the performance As heavy as it goes. The Belgian company Circus Katoen, consisting only of Sophie van der Vuurst och Willem Balduyck, presents this contemporary circus gem. With a pile of filled sacks, the two young artists create a whimsical and imaginative performance that celebrates playfulness and creativity.” (Torben Kastrup, Danstidningen, March 2019)

”Dancer and choreographer Kitt Johnson had – with an eye for the innovative, surprising and extraordinary – brought five Art-Circus performances to Denmark. It was young, refreshing and new. Here you would find artistic equilibrists who really put themselves aside in favor of the material and the political statement. (…) Here was a festival that really left its mark in the audience and certainly, artistically, points towards new formats which would be very welcome in a greater extend in Denmark.” (Rie Hammer, ISCENE, April 2019)
