Rigorous Practise rigging master classes open for registration! #rigorouspractise

Baltic Nordic Circus Network produce rigging master class capacity building courses for technical professionals working in theatres and festivals in the Nordic and Baltic countries wanting to gain expertise and qualification in circus rigging.

We are super excited that registration is now open!

All professionals working as technical staff in performing arts in the Baltic and Nordic countries are eligible to register, apart from those who already work in a circus venue (there may be exceptional circumstances to this rule, so please enquire if you or you know someone who is keen to attend). These masterclasses are designed to support technical staff who work in/with venues/festivals who do not already programme contemporary circus arts as part of their main programme.

This spring we will organise two masterclasses. Both are lead by Fredrik Deijfen – Head Rigger of Cirkus Cirkör in Stockholm Sweden. The two courses are slightly different design and different lengths. There is no need to sign up for both.

There are limited places on the courses, they are free of charge to attend and there is a travel bursary available for participation for those in need.
