    'I think our programme was quite unsettling for European programmers because usually you want to have at least one major piece or something good that's played somewhere else—there is this complex of inferiority in a way that you feel it's much more reasonable to programme something that was already successful in Avignon or Edinburgh... you know, that you should not risk so much. Which is a very strange concept to me, because circus is all about risk.'

    John Ellingsworth talks to Festival Novog Cirkusa director Ivan Kralj about scandals, struggles, hallucinations, the Ministry of Culture, and the necessity of provocation.
