Shows by Resident Artists
EP, which means “extended play”, is used to name a musical form to long to be considered a “single” and too short to be considered an album. An EP usually lasts about 20-25 minutes. And we have based our work on this concept to create the new Show by resident companies.
But we have also changed the name, and we call it: EP (Extended Performance)
La Central will offer different creative rooms to 4 companies so that they can develop and research their creations and present them in public under optimal conditions.
A unique moment to see first-hand and go into depth into the work. These are experiments which are nourished at La Central del Circ and which are at the beginning of their creative stages, or which will be presented shortly, or new adaptations….. Fresh ideas to experience close up!
Upcoming EP: 20 and 21 March 2020
On March 20 and 21, a new edition of EP will be held at La Central del Circ. Extended Performance is an open door to discover the latest in contemporary circus work, an opportunity for the public and professionals to enjoy and follow closely the pieces that are still under development.
On this occasion, we propose an edition with a focus on the circusnext Platform. This platform, co-financed by the Creative Europe program of the European Union, gathers about thirty partners from seventeen countries, to identify and support artists involved in creating circus pieces with perspectives on authorship and uniqueness.
In collaboration with circusnext we want to celebrate the recent incorporation of Mercat de les Flors and La Central del Circ as members of the platform, giving you an insight into what is being written behind the scenes. You will find three ongoing works by authors from Slovenia, Greece and Sweden: Hugo Bergman with “Between me and a hard Place”, Mismo Nismo with “NOise Cirkus” and Myrto Petrochilou with “”. A unique time to get closer to the creative processes of the contemporary circus here and there.
