Are you circus?

11.30 am – 11.50 am // Spanish

*Activity organized in collaboration with CircoRED

The circus is one of the few artistic sectors that haven’t got data that makes its situation and needs visible. Therefore, from CircoRed and with the support of INAEM, a 3-phase study has been launched that helps to know the sector entirety and that will be able to quantify the number of professionals that make it up.

Eva Luna García-Mauriño Suárez, study coordinator
Rosa Colell Benavides, CircoRED coordinator

Zoom Blue - Activities for professionals

Circus and audience, the cultural imagination of the circus

10.00 am – 11.00 am // Catalan

In recent years the circus has undergone a remarkable evolution. Has the collective imagination accompanied this contemporaneity or is it still in the vision of the circus of decades ago? We will talk about what this cultural evolution has meant and the consequent new link between the circus and the audience.

The circus in Quebec

11.30 am – 12.00 pm // Spanish

Montreal, Quebec, is considered a “global capital” of the circus. But what part of that status historically depends on the success of Cirque du Soleil? And what changes are taking place artistically as we emerge into a post-pandemic era? Ruth Wikler will introduce the “next wave” of contemporary Quebec circus.
