The International Theater and Circus Festival of Amposta is a publicly owned performing arts festival.
The festicAM is a cultural and artistic proposal, which was born in 2013 from the EtcA organized jointly with the Ajuntament d'Amposta, which takes place in the capital of Montsià, in the heart of Delta de l'Ebre, with the aim of promoting the city as a point of reference for the circus, physical theater and performing arts in the Terres de l'Ebre, turning it into a showcase and display of different proposals and projects of live arts from around the world.
The bet for this project is a bet to promote culture and live arts in the territory of the Terres de l'Ebre, to be a nexus of rapprochement and echo towards the south, in which shows will share the spotlight, on the one hand of companies in which there is a clear vocation to bring languages together and make innovative contributions in these fields, placing emphasis on street arts and, on the other hand, creations born from performing arts schools of throughout Catalonia. For this reason, the International Festival of Theater and Circus -festicAM-, is a show and also a space for relationship and dialogue, research, exchange and rapprochement.
