A Feedback Culture for Circus
Articulation and Interpretation: Feedback Workshop
Declan Mee, Director of Katapult (DE) will hold a lecture and a structured workshop about giving and receiving feedback in circus creation, applied on a work in progress showing of company Kaaos Kaamos. The workshop helps participants develop a better understanding of their own thought processes, which will enable better communication of ideas and opinions. Participants will be given tools to discuss art in a deeper and more constructive manner, relevant for circus but also outside this context.
OBS! Full-day participation is necessary

‘Højtalere‘ by Villads Bugge Bang
Work in progress showing & Artist Talk
In this work in progress, Villads shares his exploration of the speaker as an object, and its interaction with other objects. A focus point for the performance looks at possibilities for object manipulation without being in direct contact with them.

Circus Life Hacks
Group discussion and debates
A space of informal sharing, talks, and debates on issues that often leave a circus artist “on edge.”
In group discussions, we will tackle among others: situations of compromise between artistic work and administrative work; juggling family life and artistic work; balance and sustainability in an artist’s life.
