Currently, we are unable to meet you at your festivals and in your theaters, nor can we invite you to a live showcase. However, we believe you will enjoy this exclusive online program where you are guaranteed to discover unexpected gems, new artists, or revive your existing partnerships. Our artists are seeking space where they can create, co-productions they can engage in and opportunities to perform for your audiences.
During the showcase week, registered viewers were able to go online and watch shows which have already premiered as well as peek into the rehearsal rooms and creative laboratories of the featured circus artists.
Veronika Štefanová hosted a live panel discussion Czech Contemporary Circus Talk with all the featured artists, which you can watch at homepage.
The Czech Contemporary Circus Showcase is an event for Czech and international organizations, journalists and professionals who present, program or support the performing arts. The event is not open to the general public.
