Dynamo Circus Festival


Welcome to a performing arts festival that celebrates shared experiences! Free from taste judgment and arbitrary avant-garde tyranny, this is a life-affirming embrace of the general human: the empathy, the fear, the redemption, the joy, the euphoria, the tension and the loss of control. Together vi explore circus!

The fifth edition of the International Contemporary Circus Festival is packed with music, community, parties, unpredictable experiences and, of course, contemporary circus. It is a tour de force in intensity, poetry, humour and magic. Between former silos and harbour industry, cultural life meets faded concrete – here, in June, DYNAMO presents an intense festival displaying this circus genre from its best side.

A circus festival needs to entertain, but must also challenge status quo! That’s why this year’s program contains astonishing contemporary circus performances, thrilling live music that sets the floor on fire, open stage, and a film program presented in collaboration with Odense International Film Festival.
