Do you have issues with circus? No one to talk to? Nothing to say with your tricks? No home for your weird ideas?

DETAILS

*APPLICANTS TO THIS SESSION SHOULD APPLY WITH A WORK THAT WILL BE PRESENTED (5-20 minutes,) which typifies the issue with which they have been struggling.*

5-10 circus artists will bring their issues to Big Sky Works in Brooklyn, NY. Participants should be currently working with concepts that confront obstacles particular to circus performance. Perhaps it is the idea of letting go of tricks, or playing with what constitutes performance space, or even audience expectation.

Whatever the problem, the group will attempt to solve it over 2 days (Nov. 9-10) of presentation and workshopping.

The following two days (Nov. 11-12) will be spent “working out” our issues and presenting them again to a public audience. Presentation to as public audience on Nov. 12th.

*APPLICANTS TO THIS SESSION SHOULD APPLY WITH A WORK THAT WILL BE PRESENTED (5-20 minutes,) which typifies the issue with which they have been struggling.*

Big Sky Works differs from many other circus training spaces in that Tanya Gagné has spent the past twenty+ years crafting an eclectic community of traditional and experimental performers from any number of artistic disciplines. The DIY attitude of this community is what gives this space the continuous feeling of openness and acceptance that is necessary when the chances of failing are great.

As Risk Agitator is an emerging network, we cannot offer stipends or places to stay, and therefore only artists who live in, or have places to crash in NYC should apply!
