After the great success of the last edition that took place in 2012 and gathered more than 400 international professionals, FRESH CIRCUS - International Seminar for the Development of Circus Arts, is back in 2016 for a new edition!

Organised by Circostrada Network and HorsLesMurs, in partnership with La Villette, between April 13-15 in La Villette (Paris, France) the third edition of this not-to-be-missed “rendez-vous” will bring together circus players, artists, programmers, journalists, researchers and policy-makers for 3 days of intense reflection and exchanges.

Entitled "Moving Borders", FRESH CIRCUS#3 will explore in all latitudes the geography of circus arts to draw a picture of the development of contemporary circus across the globe.

  • Central Europe - The emergence of contemporary circus
  • Central America and Latin America - The artists’ path: from social circus to circus creation
  • South Europe - Artists’ mobility or emigration?
