February Circus Thinkers Events

For 2022 we have decided to every month publish the planning for the next 4ish sessions on the news page on Cirkus Syd website. So, if you want to join for a block of 4 sessions you can keep an eye on what is going on and what to join with a bit of notice.


On Tuesday the 18th of January we will start discussing Chapter 1 of the book Circus, Science and Technology. As usual its not mandatory to have read the material to turn up and discuss as we use the readings to leap off the page into a (hopefully) vibrant discussion.


Tuesdays 17:00-18:30 CET via Zoom

Anyone interested in circus thinking is welcome, meaning you can be an artist, producer, hobby circus fan or however you identify. The diversity makes us have more to talk about, to understand each others perspectives and learn from each others different experience of circus.
