BETA CIRCUS artists are now selected

BETA CIRCUS Participatory experience is a European cooperation project that aims to create a transnational opportunity to explore the participatory circus as a future trend to engage the audience participation in the circus creative process, letting the audience to become co-authors, editors, and observers of the artistic work. By applying the participatory arts methodology to the contemporary circus scene, the project will promote the engagement of the local community from the intervention place with a full and integrated creation process, applied to unconventional spaces for artistic presentation, including the public space, connecting contemporary arts to the immaterial local cultural heritage by the voice of the inhabitants as co-creators with professional artists.

The selection process was done throughout a European open call for circus artists and national open calls for artists with some experience in participatory arts. The selection is completed and we are pleased to inform the selected artists that will take part of the adventure.
