The Tashkent State Circus artists have returned home with the prize of the 13th International Youth Circus Festival-Contest that took place in Moscow.
Within several days artists from various countries demonstrated more than 30 performances of different genres on the arena of the Moscow Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard. Uzbekistan was represented by the Tashkenbaevs dynasty, the world famous ropewalkers. The audience watched breathtaking acrobatic feats by our ropewalkers with great admiration, for which they won the third prize of the festival, and received ‘The Bronze Elephant’.
“Each of the festival is a display of best world achievements, and participation in similar festivals serves a big incentive to develop,” tells a production director of the Tashkent State Circus Olimjon Tashkenbaev. “The jury estimated the presentation of the turn and performance skills of artists. They came after the artists from Russia and China, who showed better results.”
Representatives of the Tashkenbaevs dynasty won in many international contests. In 2009, in the similar festival hosted by China they won ‘The Bronze Lion’, and in 2010 in Italy our artists got the first prize ‘The Golden Coliseum.’
