Hand to Hand – A European contemporary circus exploration in public space to collectively question the notion of social ecology
Hand to hand is the result of a transnational cooperation involving a multiplicity of actors, circus artists, cultural institutions, private companies, and scientific and artistic research actors. This new European cultural cooperation project, Hand to Hand, aims to explore the issue of sustainability – social ecology, through learning and experiential spaces of innovation and research for contemporary circus artists, especially emerging in their artistic practice in public space.
Hand to hand aims at identifying contemporary circus artists who develop a singular approach to circus as professional creators, preferably with no previous experience of the public space (emerging artists in public space) from the European Union (+ UK), having a fluent practice of the English language (all the activities will be in English) and available for each activity of the project.
Emergence is understood as a level of knowledge of artistic practices in public space and should not be confused with youth: there is no age limit for applicants. The students aren’t accepted.
We organize a public online session to present the project and especially the open call the 3rd of May at 12.00 CET with the partners and the coordination team. To join the infosession, please click on this link : https://bit.ly/3AwZykH

Open call, dead line May 30: https://handtohandproject.eu/The-open-call-2.html
The project brings together 4 European partners, cultural circus and performing art operators : Le Palc, a national circus centre in France, ROOM 100 in Croatia, Bússola in Portugal and Helsingør Theatre in Denmark. It aims to explore the issue of sustainability through learning and experimental spaces of innovation and research for circus artists, especially emerging artists in their artistic practice in public space, and give them new capacities of initiating such a transition.
