YOUNG STAGE is the biggest circus festival in Switzerland and a non-profit organization that was founded in 2006.
We specifically and sustainably promote young circus-talents from all over the world and provide a platform for contemporary circus in Switzerland which contributes significantly to its recognition and promotion as a performing art.
For many years, YOUNG STAGE has been committed to ensuring that the circus is recognised and promoted as a cultural form in Switzerland. The festival was one of the very first organisations that programmed and showed new circus in Switzerland. We are talking to political bodies and we give numerous lectures in companies, associations and other organisations to show that the circus is alive and to explain how the genre has changed over the last 40 years.
