What is EPICIRQ?
EPICIRQ is a showcase for presenting the Baltic professional contemporary circus with the aim of increasing interest, exposure and export of the field within the region and in international level.
The programme is divided between the main programme (presenting full length or work in progress performances and pitch presentations), educational programme (workshops for movement professionals; discussions before and during the showcase), shorts programme (short act presentations during the afterparty) and extra programme (non-curated programme by local circus artists and companies).
The showcase has been brought alive by Estonian circus artists and enthusiasts. After the pilot of an Estonian showcase in 2018, EPICIRQ has decided to spread across Baltic states, widening the programme and strengthening the unique identity of Baltic contemporary circus.
For all registered international and local presenters, circus researchers and field professionals (apart from artists) the main programme is free of charge with the aim of increasing export and booking possibilities of the performances. Registartions are open HERE and will stay open until the 4th of October.
