Miramiro is a workingspace for artists with a love for contemporary circus, in the urban environment of Ghent. It is a creative sanctuary where artists are given space and time to develop, create and experiment. We like to bring people together, artist and audience in particular, to share artistic creations. Because it is those encounters where the magic happens.

Our organization has already undergone several transformations to become who we are today, a workspace for circus. Since the beginning of Miramiro in the 1990s, as a street theatre festival, one element has remained constant… Our love to color outside the lines of the theatre, literally and figuratively. Outdoor, tent, specific locations or interaction with the public.

Our approach is simple and flexible, each project is examined individually. Miramiro consists of 3 permanent employees and a lot of enthusiastic volunteers.

Miracles matter!

L’association MiramirO a pour but de contribuer à la diffusion, à la reconnaissance et au développement des arts en espace public, sur le plan national et international.

Pour ce faire, elle: 

  • Propose une plateforme pour de nombreuses disciplines artistiques (théâtre in situ et théâtre itinérant, cirque, installation, arts visuels, danse, etc. allant des productions intimes aux spectacles de grande envergure)
  • Présente des programmes de festivals de qualité et innovants, faisant tomber les barrières, repoussant les limites et explorant de nouveaux horizons en matière de création artistique
  • Encourage la coopération interdisciplinaire sur le plan national mais aussi international
  • Sensibilise les autorités locales et le grand public à ces formes d'art.
