Letni Letna has been one of partners in CircusLink project, who worked together in a spirit of cooperation and openness to develop CircusLink platform. CircusLink considers mobility as a common project, shared by programmers and companies, so that each show can find its right place in the European circus landscape. That is the reason why we created the CircusLink network and ti’s website, a tool made to encourage and facilitate the mobility of circus arts inside Europe.
