The 16th International Festival of Circus Art in China (China Wugiao International Circus Festival) is over.

He presented the special prize of The Kazgoscircus – “Altyn Adam” to the air gymnasts Julia Makeeva and Alexey Turchenko (Julia Makeeva, Alexey Turchenko, USA).
According to B.A. Bokebaev, participation in such large-scale festivals provides an excellent opportunity for popularization of The Kazakh State Circus, an opportunity to exchange experience and see the best achievements not only of circus artists of international level, but of the whole modern circus industry.
