Circus Without Circus

2021 – 2023 Residency programme

Organised by 8 partner organisations and co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, CIRCUS WITHOUT CIRCUS is an interdisciplinary research project for artists from the circus field and from all other artistic fields such as music, film, dance, theatre, design, architecture, visual arts, etc.

18 emerging European artists, 9 from the circus field and 9 from other artistic fields, have been selected for a residency programme (2021-2023) aimed at sparking artistic exchange between disciplines by facilitating one-on-one research residencies.

The overall aim is to facilitate cross-boundary research and to develop and explore cross-disciplinary working methods. The selected artists are invited to step out of their comfort zone, to let go of habits, give up control, and open up their artistic process in the encounter with another artist.

September 2021 – Residency in Reims, France with aerial artist Dora Komenda (HR)

April 2023 – Residency in Split, Croatia with circus artist Joren de Cooman (BE)
