Jacksons Lane, a London venue used by many young circus companies as a test-bed for original work, launches its Postcards Festival. Dedicated to new work and emerging artists, the festival programmes short pieces from Gisele Edwards, Zu Aerial (pictured), Collectif and then…, Stefano Di Renzo, Frederike, Francesca Martello, Tumble Circus, Lost In Translation Circus and others – giving a bustling snapshot of contemporary circus at a moment of eclectic, multi-directional growth. Their Associate Artists are Silver Lining and Alula. Since 2014 they have sponsored the Jacksons Lane Total Theatre Award for Circus at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As well as being part of the judging panel for productions, they then offer a residency to the winning company.
