For eight days, big and small can enjoy the activities designed with the family in mind that the festival will include in six of its nine non–musical areas.
MagicoMundo will present multiple leisure options daily, to be enjoyed in ‘teams’, with bubble and balloon workshops, as well as family laughter classes, batucadas, and even a session of Ethiopian circus and percussion, and another with Buddhist stories.
The circus shows, with doses of theatre, humour and acrobatics, will take place each evening in Rototom Circus with Pallasos en Rebeldía, Spinnovation NZ, and many more; and at night the mobile shows will fill every corner of the festival with the magic of the circus. The adolescent audience will be able to try their hand at acrobatics, juggling and air fabrics with the daily workshop by the Escuela Circo Diverso.
The African Village also has a special programme this year for families thanks to the African tales told by the Senegalese Hermanos Thioune (August 16 and 19) and the Sabar party, on Friday 21. And to work your creative side, the Think Big Project will participate in the Art Symposium with a paint workshop designed for the youngest member of the public, where they can work alongside the artists creating a large scale work of art.
Other areas that feature leisure elements for families are the ArteSano Market, and where each evening there will be a wide range of workshops on offer, and the Living Energy area that will this year host capoeira classes for everyone.
