The Circus’ Impulse Plan
(Pla d’Impuls del Circ)
The Circus’ Impulse Plan 2019-2022 is an initiative from the Culture Department and the Circus Professionals Association of Catalonia (APCC). The strategy consists of 11 specific measures fully funded by the Culture Department of the Catalan Government.
The main objective is a set of promotion and dissemination opportunities for circus in the country’s cultural, social and financial fields across frontiers. In this edition, Tapezi and PIC (Pla d’Impuls del Circ) are collaborating in two measures: A Catalan Journey and Esfera Circ.
A Catalan Journey
A Catalan Journey aims to give international visibility to Catalan Circus establishing a close network with European professionals and organisation to create synergies to boost the dissemination of Catalan Circus in the North of Europe.
This one-year project will consist of a series of virtual and in-person meetings with a group of European programmers and artists and professionals of the Catalan circus scene. In these meetings we will develop a picture of the current Catalan circus creation.
A Catalan Journey will kick off at the 25th edition of Trapezi and will finalise in May 2022 during the 26th edition of the festival.
Coordinated by the APCC, A Catalan Journey is the internationalization measure of the Circus’ Impulse Plan with the support of the Culture Department and the collaboration of Institut Ramon Llull.
Esfera Circ is an accompaniment programme for culture professionals, with the objective of disseminating and broadening circus knowledge to enable the presence of this art in the performing arts circuit in Catalonia. This programme with its different formative actions focuses on broadening the circus imaginary and breaking with certain expectations and prejudices that constrain the creation, production and reception wheel into a close and small circus circuit.
The project, which is now in it’s second cycle, will run during three years with a group between 8 and 10 people per cycle (2019-2020 i 2020-2021). The idea behind the project is to link different proposed formative actions to national and international events in which circus has a main role.
Coordinated by La Central del Circ, Esfera Circ is one of the eleven measures of the Circus’ Impulse Plan, with the support of the Culture Department and the collaboration of Institut Ramon Llull.
