Whereas the New Circus and Physical Comedy scene is growing at silicon chip speed all over the world,
Whereas there are very few festivals dedicated to New Circus and Physical Theater in the USA,
Whereas Portland has become a center in the United States for this scene,
Therefore we launch the Umbrella Festival of Circus and Comedy to be a national leader in the movement!
Come be a part of it!
