The circusnext 2024 selection is a 3-step process

The 1st and 2nd steps of the selection process are based on an application form and a video. The 3rd step is based on the presentation of a work-in-progress on stage and an interview.


Step 1 – National Pre-selections
April to June 2023
The national committees (composed of local professionals and artists) meet to study the applications received in each European country and pre-select projects.


Step 2 – European Selection of Finalists
November 2023
The European Selection of Finalists is held in Paris: all the members of circusnext Platform gather to select 12 Finalist projects.


Step 3 – Selection of Laureates
During the Selection of Laureates at Théâtre de la Cité internationale (Paris), the 12 Finalists present on stage a 15-20 minutes work in progress of their show to professionals and circusnext’s artistic jury. In addition they are interviewed by the artistic jury who selects 4 circusnext 2024 Laureates.


The 4 Laureates will perform for the general public on May 16 & 17, 2024 during the “Revelations circusnext 2024″ at the Théâtre de la Cité internationale (Paris).
