Festival of contemporary circus


FRESH CIRCUS#5 - Circus and territories : selected projects

In the frame of FRESH CIRCUS#5 – International Seminar for the Development of Circus Arts, which will take place in Auch (France) in the course of the festival CIRCA, from 22 to 24 October 2019, a call themed “Circus and Territories” was launched last month by CIRCa, Circostrada and ARTCENA throughout France, Europe and abroad.   

We were particularly pleased by the strong mobilization around this call!
We received no less than 110 applications from actors and stakeholders from around the world who have either initiated, developed or supported a circus project on a given area, for only 20 places available.
