    As part of the European residency project Unpack the Arts, ten cultural journalists visited Subcase in Stockholm 13-16 February 2013 to encounter (in some cases for the first time) the many faces of contemporary circus. Seeing five shows – Los Galindos' Maiurta, Chipmunk Forge's Phågel, Ruby Rose's EAT IT!, Patrik and Wes' Between Someonesons and Cirkus Cirkör's Knitting Peace – and interviewing the artists after their performances, the journalists then wrote the articles collected here – published in the original language and in English translation.
