Cirkus Xanti arranges The Circus Village, a professional showroom and Norway’s first arena for developing contemporary circus as art. This is a place where artists from all over the world can produce, perform, experiment and train. But most of all, The Circus Village is a place where children and adults can be seduced by the magic of the circus, laugh at clownery and be amused and amazed by jaw dropping stunts and impressive acts.

We also offer several classes and workshops for professionals, amateurs and beginners of all ages. Who hasn’t fantasized about running away with the circus? In The Circus Village fantasies come true, and nothing is impossible!
