Albert & Friends Instant Circus

Starting as a short-term project, Albert & Friends later develops into London’s largest youth circus. In 2004 they start to produce the biennial London International Youth Circus Festival, inviting youth circus practitioners from around the world to exchange experience and skills and to perform for a public audience. In 2012 the fifth LIYCF is held at London’s Hoxton Hall and recreates a 1930s Berlin cabaret, members of Albert & Friends performing alongside students of Germany’s Circus Cabuwazi and Finland’s Circuitous.
