Spotlight UK Circus update!

We are excited to announce the four UK companies that will present full length shows at Festival OFF d’Avignon in July 2018, they are; Pirates of the Carabina, Ockham’s Razor, Nikki & JD and Tumble Circus.

Spotlight UK Circus showcase aims to raise the profile of UK contemporary circus on the international scene, increase the capacity and ability of UK companies to promote themselves and tour internationally, and develop and support a new network of touring contemporary circus companies. Spotlight UK Circus is led by NoFit State Circus and Crying Out Loud and funded by the Arts Council England International Showcasing fund.

The companies which were previously selected to present at CIRCa festival du cirque actuel are now in Auch where 60 promoters have attended pitch sessions by seven artists and the shows from all four British companies have been well received and have sold out!
