Brussels - Fresh Circus #4


FRESH CIRCUS#4 – International Seminar for the Development of Circus Arts – will be hosted in Brussels from March 13 to 15, co-organized by Espace Catastrophe and Wallonie-Bruxelles Théâtre/Danse.

Located at the very centre of the capital of Europe, FRESH CIRCUS#4 is a not-to-be-missed professional event and a key time for collective reflexion, exchange and celebration of circus values.

During three days, FRESH CIRCUS#4 will be the occasion to explore circus arts from every angle and create links with artists and professionals coming from all over Europe and beyond. Entitled "MORE THAN CIRCUS!", this edition will be the opportunity to delve into the circus iconography and its stereotypes, to highlight innovative initiatives and to show circus arts in all their diversity.

This new edition promises to be rich in contents and themes, with the presence of outstanding speakers to facilitate the discussions during the three days. To give you an idea of the agenda: 3 thematic plenary sessions, 9 roundtables, 9 participative workshops, some networking time to make new encounters and exchange with other professionals of the field, visit of local circus venues, an attractive artistic programme in the course of FESTIVAL UP!... and much more!

Registrations are open (28 February deadline) and the programme is online on the Circostrada website.

FRESH CIRCUS#4 will take place at the heart of FESTIVAL UP! – International Circus Biennale [15th edition], offering a wide artistic programme presented in different cultural venues of the Belgian capital.
