circusnext is an exciting project about finding through an open call and then supporting emerging artists likely to become a driving force in contemporary circus in Europe. This is achieved through collaborations with key EU based partners to enable the artists to be hosted in creation centres, to find professional assistance (directors, choreographers, composers) to meet producers, talk with technicians, plus dialogue with venues and festivals who will ultimately programme their work.

One main aim is to take into account the different contexts that the artists live and work in, as the standard of circus varies hugely across the Europe.

Circus Futures is delighted to be the UK & ROI Partner as a co-organisers of circusnext, working with the project to launch this new cycle of identification and support of original and creative emerging circus creators.

Please contact us at Circus Futures if you are a UK or ROI artist or company and would like assistance with developing your ideas.
