Ay-Roop welcomes, supports and promotes circus artists but also implements contemporary circus in the Breton territory.

Multiple-faced, Ay-Roop is working as a producing and touring agent for circus companies but also as a programmer and a cultural agent for local audiences.

The organization is working all year long in collaboration with local partners and setting up a pre-summer festival in Rennes region.

In charge of a new metropolitan equipment in 2024, the place is aiming to become the future focus point of contemporary circus in Brittany.

Ay-Roop accueille, soutient et promeut les artistes de cirque et participe à l'implantation du cirque contemporain sur le territoire breton.
Multi-facettes, Ay-Roop produit et diffuse les compagnies de cirque mais agit également en tant que programmateur et médiateur culturel pour les publics locaux.
La structure travaille toute l'année en collaboration avec des partenaires locaux et met en place un festival en région rennaise.
En charge d'un nouvel équipement métropolitain en 2024, le lieu a pour ambition de devenir le futur point de convergence du cirque contemporain en Bretagne.
