• Unpack the Arts: CIRCa Festival, France

    As part of the European residency project Unpack the Arts, ten cultural journalists visited CIRCa Festival in Auch 31 October - 3 November 2012 to encounter (in some cases for the first time) the many faces of contemporary circus. Seeing five shows – CNAC's This is the end, Chabatz d'Entrar's Perchés, My!Laïka's Popcorn Machine, Cirque Ici / Johann Le Guillerm's Secret, and Circa's Wunderkammer – and interviewing the artists after their performances, the journalists then wrote the articles collected here – published in the original language and in English translation.
