Starting in 2012, currently with 38 employees, the Albanian National Circus is able to present on average, each year, two premiers that are showed all year round. The artistic repertoire is usually made of 40-45 artistic numbers of all genres.

The Albanian National Circus includes in its repertoire artistic forms from national traditional circus as well as from all over the world. These artistic references are reflected in music, rhythm, costumes, scenography and even artistic direction. Its work has been cheered and applauded by hundreds of thousand viewers of all ages in Albania and beyond. Its artists are mainly young, with a great desire to develop their skills and to gain experience in projects all over the world.

Part of the structure of the National Circus is the Circus Studio, where new artists are trained. Since 1990, many professional collaborations have been established with circuses, circus schools and various circus organizations from many European countries.
