San Severino Marche will sponsor the birth of the first multidisciplinary international production center linked to contemporary circus. Called Sic, Stabile di Innovazione Circense, it will become effective on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of Circo El Grito. During its first year of activity, more than 170 shows will be performed, both in-house productions and external circus companies from all over the world. The shows will be performed on international stages during the Circo El Grito tour, as well as at the wonderful Feronia Theater, official partner of this project.

El Grito is a business from the Marche region, born in 2015: it was the first contemporary circus to be recognized the Italian Ministry of Culture and by the Marche Region institution. Its founders are considered pioneers of contemporary circus in Italy.

The opening ceremony will be held on Thursday, July 21. The stop in San Severino Marche was chosen as a symbolic date in which the Sic was established, as a thank you to the Municipal administration and the citizens for the trust they’ve shown to the project.
