IRC South America 2015 Highlights Video

The 2015 IJA Regional Competition – South America, was hosted by La Conve Pie Derecho in Lima, Peru.  The event was part of a three day circus convention held at Lima’s Cultural Ministry in the heart of the city.  Not only was the Cultural Ministry supportive for the event, but the media of the city also showed strong support by publishing magazine articles and featuring the festival director, Jonathan Sajoux, as well as several special guests on a variety of talk shows and news stories leading up to the convention.

The theatre and facilities were top-notch, and the organizing team strong. The convention was littered with impressive shows, inspiring talent, and a welcoming and progressive feel. It is obvious that the Peruvian juggling scene is on the move, putting a large focus on local juggling education and providing ways for the students of these educational programs to be involved with the convention.
