Spotlight UK Circus at CIRCa festival du cirque actuel

Spotlight UK Circus is a new initiative coordinated by NoFit State and Crying Out Loud that offers the chance to raise the profile of UK contemporary circus on the international scene.

Fifty six companies applied to showcase their work at CIRCa festival du cirque actuel in October and we’re pleased to announce that artistic director Marc Fouilland has chosen full length pieces from Pirates of the Carabina (FLOWN); Ockham’s Razor (Tipping Point); Nikki & JD (Knot); and Ellie Dubois (Ringside).

We’ll announce the companies chosen to present pitches and works in progress, and those selected for Subcase Subtopia Circus Fair shortly. A second callout for applications for Festival OFF d’Avignon opens on 16th June
