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 showcase has been brought alive by Estonian circus artists and enthusiasts. After the pilot of an Estonian showcase in 2018, EPICIRQ expanded in 2019 to be covering all of the Baltic states, widening the programme and strengthening the unique identity of Baltic contemporary circus.
EPICIRQ 2021 will take place on October 6th to 10th in Tallinn, Estonia. The open call for artists to apply will be open on February 1st to 28th. The chosen programme will be announced on March 24th.
The registrations for international and local presenters, circus researchers and field professionals will be open from April.
The programme will be divided between the main programme (presenting full length or work in progress performances and pitch presentations), 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).
