Podrška će biti pružena u obliku  finansijske podrške za produkciju predstava, rezidencijalne podrške sa “workin-progress” prezentacijama širom Evrope, mentorstva, umrežavanja s međunarodnim stručnjacima iz područja izvođačkih umetnosti i vidljivosti tj. promocije rada CircusNext laureata.Program je namenjen neafirmisanim savremenim cirkuskim umetnicima i stvaranju novih projekata.

Dodatne informacije o konkursu i potrebna dokumenta možete skinuti ovde:

Na konkurs se mogu prijaviti svi, pojedinci ili grupe, bez obzira na starost, a uslovi su sledeći:
– ne postoji starosna granica (umetnici moraju biti punoletni, ali se izraz “mladi umetnik” koristi da se opiše neafirmisani umetnik koji nema velikog zvođačkog iskustva, a ne umetnik koji je mlađi od 29)
– projekat se može prijaviti individualno ili ispred umetničke grupe (postojanje pravnog oblika delovanja nije uslov)
– umetnici moraju imati prebivalište u Evropi
– predstave koje su već premijerno izvedene ili čije su premijere planirane pre završne javne prezentacije u Parizu (Maj 2019.) nisu prihvatljive
– umetnici koji učestvuju u projektu ne smeju biti studenti cirkuskih akademija u trenutku prijave (takođe, formalno cirkusko obrazovanje nije uslov za prijavu)
– umetnici ne mogu biti Jeunes Talents Cirque Europe ili Circus Next laureati iz prethodnih edicija
– umetnici moraju biti slobodni da učestvuju na selekcijskoj nedelji u Neerpeltu (Maj-Jun 2018.) i na završnoj prezentaciji u Parizu (Maj 2019.)
Dodatni kriterijumi prihvatljivosti, osim gore navedenih, za umetnike/grupe s područja bivše Jugoslavije su:

Dodatni afirmacioni kriterijumi su:
– projekat može prijaviti neafirmisani umetnik ili grupa, ali grupa koju čine afirmisani umetnici nije prihvatljiva
– “out-side-eye” koji je afirmisani umetnik i uz to je ko-autor projekta čini projekat neprihvatljivim.
Umetnici s prebivalištem na području bivše Jugoslavije (Bosna i Hercegovina, Crna Gora, Hrvatska, Kosovo, Makedonija, Slovenija, Srbija) prijavljuju se regionalnim partnerima projekta – Cirkorama (Zagreb), Cirkusfera (Beograd) i ROOM 100 (Split) do 29.

Selektovani umetnici ili grupe se zatim prijavljuju sa istim projektom žiriju cele platforme, do 31. Januara 2018. u 15:00 sati, te ulaze u zajednički “bazen” 30 odabranih evropskih prijava. Evropski žiri CircusNext projekta će zatim odabrati 12 umetnika ili grupa koje od Marta do Juna 2018. godine primaju rezidencijalnu podršku od strane članova platforme radi pripreme izvođačkog materijala za selekcijsku nedelju.
Selekcijska nedelja se održava krajem Maja i početkom Juna 2018. godine u belgijskom gradu Neerpeltu prilikom kojeg će žiri CircusNext projekta, na temelju 20minutnog izvođačkog materijala i intervjua, izabrati 6 laureata projekta! Laureati projekta dobijaju finansijsku podršku da završe produkciju svoijih predstava; rezidencijsku podršku za kraciju; “work-in-progress” prezentacije, mentorsku i administrativnu podršku u produkciji predstava i povećanje vidljivosti mladih tj. neiskusnih kompanija pred evropskim profesionalcima radi osiguravanja daljnje budućnosti predstave. Završnom prezentacijom laureata u Maju 2019. godine u Parizu se završava laureatska podrška i edicija 2017-2019 projekta.
CircusNext PLaTFoRM projekat je finansiran sredstvima Kreativne Europe, kroz podprogram platforme, u iznosu od 500.000,00 €. Projekat je započeo realizaciju 1. Novembra 2017. godine i završava 3.

Aerial movement workshop – ZAGREB

25th, 27th and 28th of September 2017.- Zagreb
11:00-13:30
with Dana Augustin (Hrv/Slo)
Aplication deadline: 22nd of September 2017. At 00:00 on e mail: cirkorama@gmail.com with note: for aerial movement
Prize: 50 euro

This workshop consists of two parts:
First; “Flexibility & balance” part is developed trough ground exercises and second “Laboratory of aerial movement on tissues” takes focus on different exercises and movement on tissues in the air.
1. “Flexibility & balance” serves the objective to warm up whole body, flexibility and core strength coordination and balance development. Those exercises are connected to the second part’s exercises which are performed on tissue. The point is about transforming “aerial positions” on the ground and activation of important body parts with a goal of improving aerial performance. This part gives to the students’ knowledge how to prepare and how to approach to performance of inverted positions and their variations.
2. “Laboratory of aerial movement on tissues” offers practice on tissues, introduces different elements and positions, figures (consisted of few elements) and choreographic wholes. This part gives elementary knowledge of aerial movement techniques to the participants and it’s been more developed through the workshop. Participants are introduced to different approaches to the wide spectrum of elements and figures in performance. They also meet with security measures and ways of body preparation for this kind of movement.
Described program offers the grounds for technique and personal aerial acrobatics style development.
