First Collective Lab starts the 17 June 2019! 



circusnext+, an Erasmus+ European program coordinated by circusnext for the development of skills of contemporary circus project leaders and professionals who support them in their trajectories, will set up for two weeks in June at Espace Périphérique.

Twelve contemporary circus creators will take part in a laboratory for a time of collective exploration of their artistic material, under the benevolent eye of Lucho Smit, mentor and confirmed artist.

The cultural operators, partner of the project, will also be invited to confront their practices to support circus artists in the structuring of their companies and creation process during a 3-day workshop.
