CircusNext Labs2013 - 2014
In parallel to the selection process, CircusNext has created an innovative support process: the laboratories (“labs”). Labs are gatherings of about ten days, targeted to European artists identified over the course of the selection process. 10 to 15 artists are invited to work freely and collectively under the supervision of experienced and renowned artists (director, choreographers, academics…). The labs are dedicated to the writing of contemporary circus performances and consist of open sessions around the creation projects of each participating artists. They are held on specific territories and always include a local dimension of circus arts development.
