XECC

For approximately the last two, La Central del Circ has collaborated with the  Xarxa d’Espais de Circ de Catalunya (Network of Circus Spaces in Catalonia – XECC) through which, among other things, it has been possible to provide communal use of some materials and equipment. XECC is a network of public and private spaces which offer resources to create, entertain, train, produce, exhibit or disseminate circus with the goal of extending and promoting this performing art.

XECC is formed by 17 spaces from all parts of Catalonia:

– Ateneu Popular de 9 Barris (Barcelona)
– Almazén (Barcelona)
– La Nave Espacial (Barcelona)
– Gente Colgada (Barcelona)
– Escola de Circ Rogelio Rivel (Barcelona)
– La Central del Circ (Barcelona)
– L’Estruch (Sabadell)
– Circ Cric (Sant Esteve de Palautordera)
– Circo Los (Sant Celoni)
– Cronopis (Mataró)
– La Circoteca de Passabarret (Valls)
– La Crica (Manresa)
– La Llançadora i Roca Umbert (Granollers)
– Tub d’Assaig 7.70 (Terrassa)
– La Abuela Vuela (Sant Joan de Mediona)
– El Circ de les Musaranyes (Reus)
– Escola de Circ Saltimbanqui (Vilanova i la Geltrú)

XECC is supported by the Associació de Professionals de Circ de Catalunya (Association of Circus Professionals of Catalonia – APCC).

The goals of XECC are to make the network of circus spaces more visible and to achieve greater recognition of the task that they do, facilitate communication between all the members, share and optimize resources, and search for common solutions to the problems specific to circus spaces with the intention of providing stability for projects.
