The international clown festival innsbruck was a popup platform for clown theatre and professional exchange in western Austria in 2018. The festival was initiated and organized by clown duo Fort Willy. Take a look and see what happened!


There were formal and informal opportunities for exchange, resource-sharing and connecting with clown performers from all directions of the map, while surrounded by the sky and mountains of Tirol. For four days the festival became a lively meeting point for audiences, budding and professional clowns, local and international artists.
