WHAT IS CIRCLE?

CIRCLE is a series of short shows created by students from FEDEC member schools during creative, artistic and educational research workshops.

Performed at Maison de Gascogne during Circa Festival, CIRCLE are a fresh and family interlude in which the young artist often perform for the first time outside their school, in a professional context.
