2013 CIRCLE Edition, international showscase of up and coming circus artists, met a great success at Circa!

The last edition of the CIRCLE project took place in Auch during the Circa Festival, from 19 to 27 October 2013.

Twelve FEDEC members performed 20 to 30 minutes short shows developed in the context of research workshops led with students. While still in training, up and coming professional circus artists performed reflecting the working atmosphere of their schools.

They composed a rich and eclectic programme in front of and along with their peers. The performances whose quality was underlined by many professionals and the festival organisers met a great success from an enthusiastic audience in the Salle de Répétition Bernard Turin.

Discussions with the students performing and the schools’ directors organised after each presentation allowed to further discover and share the diversity of aesthetical approaches and pedagogical programme of the different vocational schools.

Throughout the week, FEDEC also held its Encounters at Circa.

12 schools took part in CIRCLE 2013:
