Circus Futures - Contemporary Circus National Showcases and Conference.

30th November and 1st December Bristol, UK- 2011.

Welcome Reception on the evening of 29th November.

Circus Futures is a unique event for national and international delegates and aims to provide connection routes between policy makers, programmers and artists by stimulating conversations between them and showcasing performances that represent the breadth of contemporary circus in the UK and ROI. It has been informed by discussions with key individuals working in and around the industry.

An "open call" for artists to apply to be paid to take place in the Showcases is presently live and can be accessed via the website or by inserting http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/circusfuturesshowcase into a browser.

In addition three Residences for artists are being offered via the same application process.

The three Showcases will be curated by Independent Producers:- Flora Herberich (mentored by Leila Jones), Joe Mackintosh and Mike Martins. This selection panel will be joined by Jeunes Talents Cirque Europe Laureate Annabelle Holland.

Delegate places can be booked by emailing: circusfuturesdelegates@gmail.com.

A full line up of conference speakers will be confirmed by 23rd September and the line-up for each of the three Showcases will be released by 17th October. In due course a full colour brochure with details of all artists who have applied to participate will be available in hard copy and on-line.

Circus Futures is a Core Partner of the Pan-European initiative Jeunes Talents Cirque Europe and with JTCE will be working throughout the next three years to develop connection routes for UK and ROI artists in Europe.
