    DYNAMO Circus Festival er udsat til næste år.
    Nyt år! Ny dato!
    Velkommen til en scenekunst-festival der hylder de fælles oplevelser - fri for smagsdommeri og vilkårlige avantgardisters tyranni. Et livsbekræftende favntag med det almenmenneskelige: Empatien, frygten, forløsningen, glæden, euforien, spændingen og kontrol-tabet. Sammen går vi i cirkus!
    Fjerde udgave af den internationale nycirkus-festival pakket med nycirkus, musik, fest, fællesskab og uforudsigelige oplevelser er en tour de force i vildskab, poesi, humor og magi. Mellem forladte siloer og industri på Odense Havn, kulturliv og bleg beton præsenterer DYNAMO igen i august en intens festival der viser nycirkus-genren frem fra sin absolut bedste side.
    En nycirkus-festival skal underholde, og den skal udfordre! Du kan regne med at årets program er udgjort af forbløffende nycirkus-forestillinger fra ind- og udland, overstimulerende livemusik der tvinger dansefeberen ud i ekstremiteterne, late-night åben scene kurrateret vilde cirkus-personligheder og endnu engang et filmprogram præsenteret i samarbejde med Odense International Film Festival.
    Når festivalen lakker mod enden og lørdag aften banker på døren åbner vi op for det vanlige episke nycirkus-flikflak der ér DYNAMOs ”Late Night Cabaret”: med nationale og internationale artister og elektronisk live-kompositioner - i år skabt og instrueret af en ganske særlig dansk nycirkus-artist, magiker og instruktør...
    Se det som en invitation til en festlig opdagelsesrejse i scenekunstgenren med folket i fokus, når vi på pladsen der omgiver Danmarks vildeste cirkushus, tilbyder cirkus-workshops, bands, foodtrucks, lokale DJs og - i denne weekend af august - Odenses bedst bemandede bar.
    Indenfor i cirkus-huset finder du som sædvanligt husets to mindre scener, en chill out lounge hvor du kan slappe af når du holder pause fra programmet, vores upolerede punk-tivoli stemning med tattoo-tombola, photo-booth og udklædningskasse, der som sædvanligt står klar til at understøtte en episk afterparty.

    DYNAMO Circus Festival: tre dage med nycirkus, musik, talks, film, workshops, men vigtigst af alt kulturel kollektivisme.
    DYNAMO Circus Festival er støttet af Nordic Council of Minsters, Odense Kommune og Statens Kunstfond, med støtte fra the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

    The Festival has been postponed until next year. That means new date, and new year!
    Welcome to a performing arts festival that celebrates the shared experiences! Free from arbitrary avant-garde tyranny, this is a life-affirming embrace of the general human capacities: empathy, fear, redemption, joy, euphoria, tension and the loss of control. Together we explore circus!
    The fourth 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. Placed in between abandoned silos and harbour industry, cultural life and faded concrete – here, in August, DYNAMO presents an intense festival displaying this circus genre from its best side.
    A circus festival should entertain, but also challenge the status quo! That's why this year's programme contains astonishing circus performances, thrilling live music that sets the floor on fire, a late-night open stage curated by amazing circus experts, and a film program presented in collaboration with Odense International Film Festival.
    To close the festival and welcome the roaring Saturday night, we dive head-first into an epic circus buffet like no other – the signature DYNAMO “Late Night Cabaret”. This edition’s cabaret presents national and international artists accompanied by original electronic live music - created and directed by a very certain Danish contemporary circus artist, magician and now also director…
    Receive this invitation to a festive exploration of the humane dimensions of performing arts. On offer? - circus workshops, bands, food trucks, local DJs, shows and, to properly welcome you in this amazing land of circus - the best bartenders in Odense behind our quirky Gorilla Bar.
    Indoors, you will find the two DYNAMO stages, a chill-out lounge, where you can relax in between performances, and our rugged punk-fun atmosphere with tattoo tombola, the photo booth and the dress up central ready to provide you with stimuli to last you a life time for an epic after-party.

    DYNAMO Circus Festival: three days of contemporary circus, music, talks, films, workshops and cultural togetherness.
    The DYNAMO Circus Festival is supported by Nordic Council of Minsters, the municipality of Odense and the Danish Arts Foundation, with the support from the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
