The Magical Circus Tour offers a Weekly circus pedagogical experience in each of the 4 cities (Lviv, Stryj, Drohobyd, Sambir) as an introduction to The Circus Art through The Circus Lab, with daily pedagogic activities in preparation to The Circus Show where the community has an active participation in the Grand Finale.

The Circus Lab offers for five days, a magical roof where children can feel free to dream and play together, inspired by the beauty of Circus.

At the end of the week, the Circus Show is our empowering community engagement strategy to inspire our audience to participate in the Grand Finale of the show. Combining elements of the classic circus, original music, theater and improvisation, the show is developed through the Circus Lab where participants will be trained to join our final show for the family and friends.

Was sind die Ziele und wer ist die Zielgruppe?

Taking inspiration from the traditional circus art that traveled from town to town, the Mobile Circus for Peace aim is to provide emotional relief to the local communities in Western Ukraine with the 2023 Summer Tour
In times of war, children are among the most vulnerable members of society. The trauma and stress of living in a war zone can have a profound impact on their mental and emotional well-being. In such a situation, our Circus can provide much-needed relief and respite from the harsh realities of war. During our previous mission in Ukraine last year, Mobile Circus for Peace offered children a sense of hope and optimism that showed them that even in the midst of adversity, there is still beauty and wonder in the world.
As one of the safer regions, Lviv Oblast also hosted a record number of internally displaced people (IDPs). According to the Lviv Regional State Administration, Lviv Oblast currently hosts around 250,000 IDPs, and that up to 600,000 IDPs have been staying in Lviv Oblast at the peak of displacement. Displaced women and children are mostly on their own, and families face the prospect of being split indefinitely. Those Ukrainians who do not cross international borders but are displaced internally often find themselves in similarly challenging conditions.
