Quote:Open deadline to companies and artists to participate in the IX edition of the TRAN TRAN International Clown Festival
published by Sebastian Martin on March 04, 2019

The Beach, the Maritime Avenue and the streets of Gran Tarajal will be invaded by clowns, artists and different shows from September 13 to 15

One more year, and there are already nine, the preparations for the celebration of the International Festival of Clowns of Fuerteventura TRAN TRAN are underway. In this regard, the deadline for companies of clown, circus, street theatre, magic or humour to present their artistic proposals to participate in the IX edition of the TRAN TRAN Festival, which will take the streets of Gran Tarajal from 13 to 15 is now open of September.

Interested companies or artists must fill out the form available on the festival website ( ) before March 15, attaching dossier, video, public, number of artists, technical requirements and cache, among other notable points. "Meeting the expectations of an event of these characteristics requires an ever-increasing preparation and coordination," said the Culture Councillor, Vicente García, who explained that "we are talking about a festival that celebrates nine editions, a time in which it has only been consolidated, but it has become a regional and national reference because it is a free cultural event designed for the whole family, although with special attention to the smallest of the house ".

The beach and the maritime avenue; the streets, parks and squares; every corner of Gran Tarajal will once again be invaded by clowns, artists and shows from the best local, national and international companies. In fact, this year work is being done to overcome the figure of the previous edition in which more than 20,000 people attended during the days of the Festival, among which were families with children, young people, adults and seniors who did not want to miss out on the appointment and spend a different weekend, enjoying the shows, activities, attractions, the beach, the restaurant, the market and the shops of the open commercial area.

But TRAN TRAN are not only clowns; TRAN TRAN is circus, magic, music, street theatre, humour, cabaret, games, workshops, solidarity and culture for all audiences and for free. "What began as a festival of local character, we see today how it has already become a regional reference. It has the uniqueness of dragging entire families to Gran Tarajal, demonstrating the good conditions of this town to host this type of event, "said the Mayor of Tuineje, Sergio Lloret. "Festivals like TRAN TRAN have a social interest, but it also generates an important activity in our municipality since, through culture, this Festival contributes to the recovery and economic revitalization of the municipality."

To talk about the Festival and its contents, it is essential to keep in mind the NGO Hospitran, chaired by the municipal worker Roberto Cabrera, "without whose involvement this Festival would not have existed nor would it have achieved the repercussion that it currently has," said Lloret. "He and all the people who have been incorporated into this project carry out a work in the Hospital or with the elderly who must be put in value".

All the information about the TRAN TRAN International Clown Festival of Fuerteventura will be updated on social networks and on the Festival website:
