This survey is based on the programming of contemporary circus forms created as part of Circus Work Ahead!, European project coordinated by KIT (Københavns Internationale Teater) in Copenhagen (Denmark), CIRCa, Pôle National des Arts du Cirque in Auch (France), Les Halles de Schaerbeek in Brussels (Belgium) and Cirqueon in Prague (Czech Republic). It started in October 2013 and carried on until December 2014.

This kind of survey which consists in interrogating circus spectators from several European countries with the same tool has not been done before and it aims to gather material about differences between spectators and about public perceptions of circus, depending on the surveyed venue.
