10:00 AM

Meeting point: Festival center, GZ Buchegg Meadow, at the information booth.

10:15 – 11:45 AM

Show of "Le cours des choses": The piece explores the significant and minor connections within a group. What happens when everyone collaborates, and what if more and more resist? The performance playfully questions our logic of consequences, challenging our imagination. Can the performers find new paths? A game with risk and humor at the intersection of circus, dance, and music. "Le cours des choses" is the latest production by Circus Chnopf, featuring 5 professionals and 6 young individuals and artists aged between 14 and 24 - performed outdoors.

Approximately 12:00 – 13:00 PM

Lunch at the festival center with individually brought picnics. Free time at the festival center with various recreational activities.

1:00 – 3:00 PM
