FRESH CIRCUS is coming to Brussels in March 2018 !

Flagship event of the Circostrada network, the International Seminar for the Development of Circus Arts has come back in 2018 for its fourth edition! Co-organised by Espace Catastrophe and Wallonie-Bruxelles Théâtre/Danse, the 2018’s edition took up residence from March 13 to 15 in Brussels, at Théâtre National.

Located at the very centre of the capital of Europe, FRESH CIRCUS#4 was a not-to-be-missed professional event and a key time for collective reflexion, exchange and celebration of circus values!

During three days, FRESH CIRCUS#4 had been the occasion to explore circus arts from every angle and create links with artists and professionals coming from all over Europe and beyond. Entitled "MORE THAN CIRCUS!", this edition was the opportunity to delve into the circus iconography and its stereotypes, to highlight innovative initiatives and to show circus arts in all their diversity.

FRESH CIRCUS#4 took place at the heart of FESTIVAL UP! – International Circus Biennale [15th edition], offering a wide artistic programme presented in different cultural venues of the Belgian capital!

Seminar Programme

FRESH CIRCUS#4 "More Than Circus!" > DAY-BY-DAY programme

How to choose my programme?

FRESH CIRCUS#4 programme was designed based on 3 main themes: 3 threads which are broken down into a diverse set of activities throughout the seminar.

You can either choose to follow one of these three paths from end-to-end or browse through parts of one and explore another, depending on your wish and mood. These paths are built around the three following themes:

Innovation | Images & Audiences  | Artistic Paths & Creation Processes 


Each thematic path includes different meeting, exchange and reflective modules so as to explore a theme in depth and each of them is divided as such:

  • 1 introductory thematic plenary session, to get a sense of the stakes and draw inspiration | Tuesday 13 [16:00 > 17:30]  
  • 3 roundtables and 3 participative workshops that will enable you to further explore the selected theme from three different perspectives | Wednesday 14 [10:00 > 12:30[14:30 > 17:00]
  • 3 work groups to produce acts or practical instruments and to imagine what the future may look like | Thursday 15 [10:00 > 12:00

Each thematic path was designed in order to give the opportunity to participants, if they so wish, to explore different themes throughout the seminar. The different modules are punctuated by friendly moments to foster new encounters and discussions.

250 years after the invention of “Modern Circus” by Patty & Philip Astley in London in 1768, and 50 years after the social, political and cultural uprisings of May 1968 which resulted in a handful of pioneers inventing “Nouveau Cirque” in France, Europe and beyond, circus has never stopped questioning, seeking and reinventing itself. “Circus is now a plural medium”, explains Jérôme Thomas, researcher and master juggler. “It is no longer a donkey and cart, but an enormous bookcase with thousands of drawers.” That is what makes our practices so powerful. They are living and active forces, with innovative perspectives, progressive subject matter, in tune with society, genres and people. Between the two stereotypical extremes of the red noses of traditional circus and the sometimes abstract corporality of contemporary circus, what is the vision of circus today? This plenary session will take you on a unique journey of images, sound and words, navigating the clichés in order to better pinpoint the real, subtle and illusive nature of current circus scenes.

Keynote speaker: Ruth Mackenzie, Artistic Director, Théâtre du Châtelet / Holland Festival (UK)

Presenter: Thomas Prédour, Cultural Administrator (Belgium)

Artistic interventions : Denis Meyers, Artist specialized in typography (Belgium) & Théâtre d'Un Jour (Belgium)



16:00 > 17:30 | Introductory Thematic Plenary Sessions  

The programme starts off with three thematic plenary sessions, taking place simultaneously in three different areas of Théâtre National. 


 Grande salle // Simultaneous translation EN-FR

As observers of circus development across our respective territories and beneficiaries of its diversity, we are dreaming up a future of new projects, new developments and new practices. Circus never ceases to explore new territories, innovate and build different relationships with other art forms, institutions, public authorities and the territories where it develops. What are these relationships today? What sectors are opening up to our practices?

Keynote speakers: Patrick Bouchain, Architect (France) & Bernard Latarjet, President of ONDA (France)

Journalist: Lyn Gardner, Theatre Critic, The Guardian (UK) 

With the participation of:

  • Rachel Clare, Artistic Director, Crying Out Loud (UK)
  • Laura Olgiati, Production Manager, Festival Cirqu'Aarau (Switzerland)
  • Eleftérios Kechagioglou, Director, Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde (France)
  • Thomas Renaud, Director, Maison des Jonglages (France)

 Cafeteria // Simultaneous translation EN-FR

What image has circus given itself? And what is its true image? Why does the general public perceive the effect of tradition despite the fact that the sector is highly creative and constantly changing? For almost forty years, circus has been moving at breakneck speed, breaking away from, but not rejecting, the traditions acquired over the previous centuries. An artistic, educational and social revolution is underway. How can we “convert the try”, pursue this metamorphosis, continue to imagine the circus of the future and retain audiences?

Keynote speaker: John-Paul Zaccarini, Associate Professor in Circus, DOCH - School of Dance and Circus

Journalist: Laurent Ancion, Chief Editor, C!RQ en CAPITALE/Espace Catastrophe (Belgium)

With the participation of:

  • Ophélie Mercier, Development Manager, Caravan International Youth and Social Circus Network (France) 
  • Mara Pavula, Director of the Circus School, Re Riga! (Latvia)
  • Adolfo Rossomando, Director, Ass. Giocolieri e Dintorni/Juggling Magazine (Italy)

 Salle Jacques Huisman // Simultaneous translation EN-FR

Circus is an incredible crossroads of exchange, where ideas collide and come together. With its body language and universal codes, circus transcends all, including time, boundaries and inequalities. In a rapidly-changing Western society, the opportunities for circus are huge. Circus cannot reject its political dimension, whatever its practice or location. Let’s look for people who make circus a constant testing ground. Let’s try to map the future landscape together.

Keynote speaker: Ali Thabet, Artist (Belgium/Tunisia) 

Journalist: Filip Tielens, De Standaard (Belgium)

With the participation of:

  • Raffaella Benanti, Head of Circus Programmes La Villette (France) 
  • Fabrizio Gavosto, Artistic Director, Mirabilia (Italy)
  • Cláudia Berkeley, Director/Programmer, Teatro da Didascália (Portugal)

The three paths introduced on Day 1 are divided into roundtables in the morning and participative workshops in the afternoon in order to explore in depth the three crosscutting themes of FRESH CIRCUS#4.

In total, 9 roundtables entitled "Stories Rooms" will take place simultaneously in the morning in order to cross circus professionals’ viewpoints and to listen to testimonies of people coming from different parts of the world.

Following the testimonies shared in the morning, 9 participative workshops entitled “Ideas Rooms” will take place simultaneously in the afternoon so as to reflect on, exchange and discuss our practices.

14:30 > 17:00 | Participative workshops "Ideas Rooms"

#1 “Public-private partnerships: funding options for circus arts ?”

 Salle Huisman // English 

Curator: Eleftérios Kechagioglou, Director, Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde (France)

Moderator: Marc Eysink Smeets, Director, Festival Circolo (The Netherlands) 

With the participation of: 

  • Ouafa Belgacem, CEO, Culture Funding Watch (Tunisia)

  • Benoît Roland, Administrator, La Coop ASBL (Belgium)


10:00 > 12:30 | "Stories Room#1": Roundtable

For a long time, contributions from private sectors to culture were seen in a negative light. Recently, innovative links with private sectors have demonstrated that these partnerships not only provide an additional source of funding, but also consolidate and ensure the long-term future of organizations and projects, boost audience numbers and create new forms of cooperation. Let’s explore some of the opportunities together.

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#1": Participative workshop

Let's seek innovative solutions, explore the best existing practices and look for new ideas that may bring additional funding, new partnerships and new ways of cooperating with other sectors.

#2  "Transdisciplinary projects & cross-cutting practices"

 Grande salle // English 

Curator: Rachel Clare, Artistic Director, Crying Out Loud (UK) & Laura Olgiati, Production Manager, Festival Cirqu'Aarau (Switzerland)

  • Sean Gandini, Juggler Director, Gandini Juggling (UK)
  • Marisa König-Beatty, Cultural Entrepreneur/Producer, BEAM (Switzerland) 


10:00 > 12:30 | "Stories Room#2": Roundtable

Contemporary forms of circus have been evolving incorporating many forms, like a laboratory it tests where art forms blur and creativity sparkles. In recent times, artists even escape from the standardized artistic boundaries to find inspiration within other industries (technology, science, business). This transdisciplinarity questions traditional categories of thinking in ‘the arts’ and provide the industry with extremely diverse and innovative approaches to creation, production and touring. What artistic and social potential lies within these trans-disciplinary collaborations? What is the impact of transdisciplinarity on creative processes?

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#2" : Participative workshop

Are artistic categories useful or do they hinder the creative process? What new creative methodologies arise when working above or in-between categories? What role do arts institutions play within a innovative trans-disciplinary process? Relevant examples of trans-disciplinary projects serve as a discussion ground to rethink circus as a category and to enlighten the practical opportunities arising from a trans-disciplinary approach to creation.

#3 Building Cities, Building Circus”

 Foyer 2è // English 

Curator: Thomas Renaud, Director, Maison des Jonglages (France)

  • Johan Swartvagher, Collectif Protocol (France)


10:00 > 12:30 | "Stories Room#3": Roundtable

Circus and cities are constantly changing. How can circus support urban change? What is the role of circus in cities and public space? Is there a specific aesthetic for circus in public space? How does urban change impact circus and vice versa? How could current dynamics become a source of opportunities and innovations?

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#3" : Participative workshop

How does circus contribute to the city and vice versa? We will look for opportunities and the latest innovations, questioning [best] practices for public policy and methods for organising work between local authorities, developers, cultural organizations and artists.

#4 “What image(s) for circus today?”

 Salle brazza, at KVS // English

10:00 > 12:30 | "Stories Room#4": Roundtable

Circus iconography has always been shared through a variety of means, including pictures, photos, texts, performances and venues. Each of these aspects addresses different audiences, such as the general public, artists, programmers, institutions or the press. Through reflective and participatory workshops to compare the opinions of recognized experts in these different sectors, we hope to kick-start discussion around this topic.

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#4": Participative workshop

Following up the points of view sprung from the morning session, and making room for more cases introduced by the workshop participants themselves, through reflective and participative workshop we will facilitate and kick-start discussion around this controversial, yet crucial, our topic.

#5 “Where to find new circus audiences today?”

  • Duncan Wall,  Author, The Ordinary Acrobat, Co-founder, Circus Now (USA) 


10:00 > 12:30 | "Stories Room#5": Roundtable

Reaching new audiences is one of the biggest challenges in the circus sector today. Where should we look for them? Should we actually focus on seeking new audiences or should we engage more deeply with the existing ones? What is the role of local communities and in which ways techniques used in community building in other sectors could contribute to our work with audience development?

This workshop is built around sharing the experience (both successes and failures) of very different institutions and individuals around the world and searching to understand what could and could not work in diverse circumstances. During the session participants will be invited to participate in several simultaneous roundtables in small groups exploring different viewpoints and strategies presented by speakers.

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#5": Participative workshop

There is not one way to look for new audiences, but techniques and strategies used in different countries and even different sectors can bring valuable additions to existing working models. Participants will be invited to work in groups on different scenarios proposed by moderator to use their common knowledge and create new working models. The content will be led by pool of knowledge owned by participants, their experience of successes and failures. Invited speakers will work as guides and advisors and helping participants to challenge themselves to seek for new methods.

Three guests from Palestine, Sweden and South Africa will present the history and development of their organization, highlighting the role and importance their production model in the light of the contexts in which they work.

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#6": Participative workshop

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#7": Participative workshop

A leap into the unknown. Using the conclusions of this morning's workshop, participants will consider how to implement mechanisms for risk-taking and artistic excellence in their territory.

A number of venues inspire and are home to circus creation, including big tops, performance halls, the street and many other unusual venues. What makes circus artists choose between a big top or performance hall? What does it mean to create a street circus performance? What about a performance in an industrial wasteland? Or in a forest? Why choose circular or front-facing configurations? Circus artists with unique backgrounds will discuss the role of space in circus creation.

14:30 > 17:00 | "Ideas Room#9": Participative workshop "Production and distribution issues"

The diversity of venues for circus creation is reflected in the great variety of production and distribution models.
