Rigas Cirks hosted the artistic laboratory #1

From 16 to 18 August, Rīgas cirks hosted the BETA CIRCUS participants for the first artistic laboratory of the participatory experience, in the frame of ReRiga festival. Learning, exchanging and networking on good practices for participatory arts methodologies were highlighted during 3 full days with the participation of all the 8 selected artists/collectives, one of the mentors and 2 expert guests that shared with the group very different perspectives about participatory arts and how it could be connected with circus arts. Lali Álvarez Garriga, Samara Hersch and Corinne Linder bring their experience and knowledge for this laboratory, supporting the group to open minds and look for participatory arts from different views.

The participatory experience will continue next November, in Portugal, with the second artistic laboratory, where 3 more mentors will join the participant artists and start the professional development programme of BETA CIRCUS. Very soon the digital content (debate) related to Riga’s laboratory will be available online.
