$2.3 million investment to boost Circus and Physical Theatre in Victoria [AU – THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE]

The Australia Council will this year provide targeted investment of $2.3 million dollars to support circus and physical theatre in Victoria.

The Victorian Circus and Physical Theatre project investment program will support 21 recipients, including individual artists, groups and organisations working across circus and physical theatre. Among the highlights, the Flying Fruit Fly Circus will work with emerging and established circus artists to develop original new works through an incubator program.

There is also support for Australia’s only First Nations-led circus company Na Djinang Circus, along with physical theatre company BoilOver which promotes inclusion for artists with disability.

A Good Catch Circus and One Fell Swoop Circus will create new aerial and acrobatic circus works of scale. Women’s Circus will receive support to build organisational capacity, and the National Institute of Circus Arts will deliver a Circus and Physical Theatre Hub and Marketplace as part of Melbourne Fringe 2023. ...link to full length article at The National Tribune.
