In a couple of weeks, Hupdate will feature an interview with Holly Treddenick, the force behind Femmes du Feu. We will talk to her about her ongoing residency program Circus Sessions and her work as a curator and artistic director.
Until then, consider getting a jump start on your residency applications for Circus Sessions. Applications close february 1st. This May it will be facilitated by Sean Gandini. Here is a short description:
This initiative is open to the diverse forms of practice that span the five families of circus: Aerial, Acrobatics, Balancing, Object Manipulation and Clown. The Circus Sessions looks to encourage artists to engage in a creative dialogue that examines their evolving form, cultivates experimentation in performance, as well as networking, advocacy and audience development and engagement strategies.
