This year, La Central del Circ and the GREC festival collaborate in a creation project that seeks to show to the city the work developed in La Central. This collaboration will result in a public presentation on July 7th and 8th at 7pm at Plaça Margarida Xirgu (Barcelona).

Thinking about how to explain our work, we thought that the best way was to experiment with a collective creation work of five circus artists -residents or users of La Central del Circ-  who will represent the main circus disciplines. The creation will also rely on the help of an artistic coordinator, a visual artist and a musician.

Taking as starting point extremely graphical materials, like 100 litres of paint and a 12 x 12m paper-covered stage, the artists will experiment a deliberately humanist, expressive and colourful adventure with a huge visual impact.

Through this open call, we will select 5 professional circus artists and 1 artistic coordinator.

Creation calendar
Creation residency and rehearsals from June 20th to July 6th (3 weeks).
Public presentation on July 7th and 8th .

The selected artists and coordinator will receive a total fee (incl. per diems) of 1.600€ (+VAT) for both the 3 creation weeks and the 2 public presentations.
– To be available fulltime from June 20th to July 6th (3 weeks).
– To be available fulltime for both presentations on July 7th and 8th.
– To be able to issue an invoice for the payment.

Chosen artistic coordinator: Pau Portabella
Chosen artists: Agustí MargaritChristopher SchlunkIris PelzNoëmie Bouissou and Marilén Ribot
