City Circ announces ‘Circus Now’  a free Showcase of Circus Work 17th - 19th April

The City Circ network, London’s premier network of venues supporting the development and presentation of circus shows, is proud to be presenting ‘Circus Now’, a showcase of UK Circus Work from the 17th -19th April 2013. The showcase will be hosted by the core members of the network: the Roundhouse, Jacksons Lane, the Albany, artsdepot and Stratford Circus in partnership with major London producers Crying out Loud, Turtle Key Arts and the National Centre for Circus Arts Circus Space as well as Sideshow Circus Magazine. The event has received support from ACE through the Grants for the Arts programme and is a continuation of a first networking meeting held during CircusFest 2012 at the Roundhouse.

The showcase will present a range of contemporary UK based artists and work, from tour ready and finished to work in progress presentations, pitching sessions and an artsmarket. Work will be of various scales and suitable for a wide range of venues and audiences. Contrary to expectations, circus work can be very self sufficient and adaptable to touring in different spaces. A lot of companies are interested in touring to rural areas or making more connections to venues and events where they are based locally.

This is just a first Save the Date Email - I'm attaching an e-flyer fyi. I have a lot of contacts from your website, but if there is a way that you could help to spread the word through your network would be much appreciated. A related website with more information will be up and running shortly.

Attendance of the showcase will be free, however delegates will have to cover their own travel and accommodation, food and tickets for the events will be provided free of charge. There are a small number of travel bursaries available to venues/programmers who have little or no funding available.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please do not hesitate to get in touch with:
