Circle: encounters between FEDEC schools
Circle is a project enabling discussion and exchanges on educational and artistic approaches on a European scale through the presentation of vocational circus schools’ creative work in progress creations.
It is also an opportunity to find out about circus schools from Europe and beyond and their students undergoing training – the circus artists of the future.
Since its creation in 2007, the Circle project has taken various forms and has been evolving in order to adapt to the needs of the network. More information on previous editions of Circle is available under Past Editions.
In 2012, Circle was held on the occasion of the Circa festival for its 6th edition (see opposite).
Circle takes place within the more global framework of FEDEC Encounters at Circa
Pictures of the previous edtions of Circle are available under Diaporama.
Another form of Encounters between schools: the "Crece" project
Coproduced by the Escuela de Circo Carampa, a member of the FEDEC, and the Teatro Circo Price, the Crece project brings together 15 young graduates from vocational circus schools in Madrid (Spain) every year for the production of a collaborative work.
In 2012, a new form of the Crece project - "Crece-Sur" was organised in Brasil by the Federacion Iberoamericana de Circo (FIC).
More information on this project on Crece blog.
2012 Edition of Circle at Circa
Circa Festival has been inviting Circle, an international showcase of up and coming circus artists for 6 years. Through these Encounters, FEDEC encourages exchanges between current and future circus artists.
At this annual gathering, the work of 12 schools from the FEDEC network from Europe and beyond can be shown through a 20 to 30 minutes original performance, created with their students during research and creation workshops.
Tuesday 30th October
Meetings with students and vocational schools’ directors led by a FEDEC representative are offered after each show.
