Circus 2021: adaptations and possibilities amid COVID-19 - Circus Events - CircusTalk
Circus and its Others welcomes this new year with our second digital event CIRCUS 2021: Adaptations and possibilities. This global workshop will provide artists and scholars from all over the world a chance to reflect on the challenges imposed by COVID-19 within the circus world.

Practitioners were invited to produce a piece of media representing their perspectives on circus and COVID-19. How are they and their communities responding to social distancing, digital platforms, governmental regulations and changes in the entertainment business? How are they embodying and responding to the ‘new reality’? Isolated training and performances, collective actions, research through social media, adapting circus spaces, and finding new scenarios to train and perform in are some of the answers. Direct contact with the public, mobility and money are the questions that remain – not everywhere, though.

These circus artists and scholars will come together on Saturday 16th January to exchange their experiences while reimagining circus for 2021. What are the lessons learnt and what’s coming next? This is an opportunity to come together as a community to complement different approaches while taking advantage of digital tools to expand our circus networks and to learn about circus realities across the globe.
