Baltic circus artist catalogue
Within the frames of “Baltic Circus on the Road” project a Baltic circus artist catalogue has been released.
There could not be a better moment to release a compilation of Baltic circus works and artists. In the last 5 years we have seen a great surge in momentum concerning circus development. With the rise of institutions, such as Rīgas cirks, creation of the Grassroot – Baltic circus artists’ network, the formation of festivals like Cirkuliacija, schools such as Cirko sapiens and artists migrating back to their native countries after studying at international schools, it seems not a day goes by without a possibility to discover something new.
See the catalogue HERE.
Despite the challenging reality, which sees not all resources and infrastructure in place yet, Baltic circus is flourishing. What makes this particularly exciting is that we discover formations of new national, cultural and artistic identities. New iterations and interpretations, helping us understand the world better one somersault at a time. It is with tremendous pleasure that we can introduce these artists and their works to you. They come highly recommended!
Catalogue was made with the support of Baltic Culture Fund, in the frameworks of “Baltic circus on the road” project and also Grassroot – Baltic circus artists’ network supported by Nordic Culture Point / Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture.
Many thanks to all the involved!
