Circus Talk Joins Discussion About the Image of Circus at FRESH CIRCUS#4
NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In March 2018, a year when the world is celebrating the 250th anniversary of circus, Brussels is gathering the international circus community for a special program. Circus Talk will attend FESTIVAL UP!, the 15th International Circus Biennial. In addition to providing press coverage of shows, Circus Talk will be part of a group of international press invited by INCAM (International Network of Circus Magazines) to attend the FRESH CIRCUS#4 conference to discuss the image of circus. https://circustalk.com/event/festival-up-biennale-internationale-de-cirque-3
FRESH CIRCUS is an international seminar for the development of circus arts and the flagship event of Circostrada, the European network, which fosters the development of circus and street arts. This year's event collaborators are Espace Catastrophe and Wallonie-Bruxelles Théâtre/Danse. The theme of the conference is "MORE THAN CIRCUS!" and is designed to encourage the circus community to critically examine the motifs and stereotypes that are associated with this rapidly evolving art form.
As a perfect corollary to FRESH CIRCUS, Espace Catastrophe will run Festival UP, offering the public a large program of more than 30 shows in Brussels (March 15-28, 2018). Circus Talk will be involved by reviewing shows, participating in the International Network of Circus Arts Magazines (INCAM) meeting, attending and reporting on the seminar and hosting a "Day in the Circus Life" takeover on Instagram on March 13th, thus embracing this annual opportunity to share full-scale contemporary circus performance-- a universal art form that is always reinventing itself, blending a wide range of artistic disciplines.
To allow circus journalists from around the world to participate in coverage of the events, INCAM is having its annual meeting, kindly hosted by Brussels tourist agency, Visit Brussels. Directors of media projects, coming from 11 different countries will meet to cover these events and to draw connections – between one artwork and another, between artists and audiences, as well as between people and vital industry information. INCAM members will take an active role in co-curating and facilitating one of the 9 topics of Fresh Circus program. Circus Talk is honored to be among the INCAM members invited to participate and will be sharing articles about the artistic works and the conference over the coming months.
