Around the Globe: Entertainment News & Events: November 13-19, 2017
Mark your calendars and save the dates, check out these live entertainment and theatre events and news occurring around the globe this week.
November 13-19, 2017
Clowns, acrobats, trapeze dancers, animal trainers and some of the world’s finest youth circus performers are just some of the colourful personalities invading Blacktown as the Australian Circus Festival heads to western Sydney. Almost 200 performers will showcase their talents over seven performances, including the 2nd Australian Circus Industry Awards.
Baltic Circle is an international festival for theatre, organised annually in November in Helsinki. The festival is an artwork that brings intensities into the city, takes stands on current questions, and ignites dialogue. It is a platform for new phenomena and an active forum for discussion. The festival speaks for bold and radical artists by producing Finnish premieres, and through international co-productions. Interventions in public spaces and participation in urban movements are in the core of their development work.
