The town of Nyon has been the birthplace of a number of circus artists who are now pursuing international careers. Today, four of them are returning to the place where they were born, accompanied by circus performers from all over the world, to share their passion and pay tribute to the place where they grew up. KERMESSE is an original, made-to-measure artistic creation: a contemporary circus project for the neighbourhood’s kermesse – a tradition that dates back more than thirty-five years. On the programme: high-flying acrobatics, trapeze, roller skates hurtling down the streets, smoke bombs of all colours, and other surprises… All in a fun, multilingual, and exhilarating atmosphere!

KERMESSE is a tribute to and celebration of this place, what it means to us and to those who live or have lived there. There are a thousand and one ways of paying tribute; we chose the circus. The circus can be used to sublimate and transform places and fuel the imagination (…)”.
