At the sixth edition of the Vaudeville Rendez-Vous International Festival, we can finally state that this is a truly regional project, which translates into a cooperation that encompasses all the municipalities that make up the “Quadrilátero Cultural” composed of the Municipality of Barcelos, Braga, Famalicão and Guimarães. And it is from this regional force that we move towards to the internationalization of the festival through the European networks that the festival integrates – CircusNext and Circostrada, betting on the internationalization of Portuguese culture and artists. It is now important to fortify this work, consolidating a national cooperation through the various festivals and theaters that are dedicated to the programme of the contemporary circus, giving it scale and visibility. This will be the point of the debate: to think of the structuring of a strong national network that is designed coherently and in an articulated way at the international level.
