BIAC's 4th edition must adapt after the French government's announcement on 7 January 2021 regarding the extension of protective measures to combat the pandemic. For the past two years, the Archaos team has been developing this edition of the biennale to be a moment of celebration and encounters. Sadly, due to the health crisis, the general public will not be able to participate, but we will still be able to welcome professionals during the Pro Forum. This may change during the month of February if health constraints are eased and if particular cultural venues are allowed to reopen.


All information will be updated daily on the BIAC website and shared on our social networks.

The Forum for professionals from the cultural sector is going ahead as scheduled and will take place from 3 to 6 February and from 10 to 13 February 2021. This allows us to maintain one of our fundamental missions: the presentation and promotion of new contemporary circus creations. Nearly half of the shows initially programmed for this edition were world premieres. The BIAC continues to embrace its commitment to creation and will present 20 premieres during the Professional Forum.
Other shows and creations will also be presented to professionals between 21 January and 21 February, outside of the official Professional Forum program.
