Cirkuliacija; [Re]viewer workshop - Circus Events - CircusTalk
This accessible and participant involving workshop gives each participant tools they feel they need in their individual and personal work when writing about contemporary circus performances.

This June, 8-10th during festival Cirkuliacija at Kaunas, Lithuania.

We approach writing from various aspects, for example:
Do I need to know a lot before I see a show?
Now, what to pay attention to when I watch this show?
What is the name for that circus discipline thing on stage…?
I have seen the show, now who is MY audience, to whom am I writing about the show and how?
The audience seemed to enjoy the show, I did not – why?!

We focus on discussions, questions and reflections. The main object of the workshop is to build up participants’ self-confidence, to increase joy of writing and to compile a checklist to help in case of ‘writer’s block’. No previous experience of contemporary circus needed! Just bring your notebook and your unique personality!

Program of the workshop and following activities:
June 8th, 1-5PM - first day of the workshop (in Kaunas); introduction seminar (4 hours with breaks)
During 9-10th participants will watch performances in Kaunas; lively discussions will happen right after every show.

After the workshop, every participant will have to write a text/review of the performance(s) or the festival itself.

She was also the Chairperson of Assitej Finland from 2011 to 2018.

Participation is free, but registration is required. The workshop will be held in English and live. We invite professionals who come across the performing arts in their professional life, who write about the art of circus. Also students who are motivated to know and expand the contexts of performing arts, contemporary circus and want to write about it.

If you have any question - email to [email protected]
Registration is open until April 21, 2023.

This workshop is part of the international contemporary circus festival Cirkuliacija. Funded by the Lithuanian Council for Culture.
