Next year The Circus Village, a sort of travelling festival and residency site that's been touring sites in Norway this summer, will be in Reykjavik, Iceland as part of Volcano Circus Festival, a new event organised by The Nordic House.
The organisers have issued an open call for artists to join the Village. In what capacity you contribute is very open: you could present a performance there, use the facilities for research and development, perform an act in the Village's cabaret, give a workshop or masterclass, or propose some other idea or project. For those interested in contributing the Village can offer:
– A 22m ø circus tent, 10m ø stage, 10m height.
– A 16m ø circus tent, 8m ø stage, 8m height.
– A 6m ø circus tent for small scale performances for children, 2.5 m ø stage, 5m up to small round couple, seating for 80 all around.
– Free use of tent/stage with basic light and sound.
– Marketing through the Nordic House and Circus Village general PR.
Volcano Circus Festival will be held 4-14 July 2013 in Reykjavik. To express interest or ask for more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline for performance/workshop proposals is 17 December 2012.
