Cirko's Season Programme
What the Cirk?
What the Cirk?
What the Cirk? programme by Cirko – Center for New Circus takes place during Baltic Circle. Since 2016 the collaboration has been shuffling the curtain between theatre and new circus and bringing together creators from both fields. This year What the Cirk? takes the form of the Academy of Artistic Thinking, along with a festival club on Friday night.
What the Cirk? Club with Recovery Laboratory: 16.11.2018 9 pm–
The Helsinki-based multi-art group Recover Laboratory takes over Cirko during the What the Cirk? Club to create an immersive universe that is both gentle and raw. Consisting of professionals from the fields of contemporary circus, art, music, video, theater and coding, the collective fills the voids with spirals, lumps, repetitive movement and gliding light. Come feel the beat, the heat, the crazy love and weird fun!
Academy of Artistic Thinking
The Academy of Artistic Thinking aims at developing dramaturgical and critical thinking. It invites performing artists to share thoughts and to learn from one another. The project includes a two-year course organised in collaboration with the Open Campus of Helsinki University of the Arts, as well as two performance productions. The first teaching period of the course takes place during Baltic Circle, with Ville Sandqvist, Doctor of Arts, Theatre and Drama, and Saana Lavaste, Professor of Directing at Theatre Academy of Uniarts Helsinki, as its mentors.
On Sunday, 18 November from 1–3pm there is an open discussion for sharing experiences on the festival week's performances.
Venue: Theatre Academy, Haapaniemenkatu 6, 00530 Helsinki
