card2 – circus on the edge

Tags: ,


The purpose of CARD2  is to create a meeting place for international researchers to introduce and share their research and to illuminate how circus practice has developed and how the field of artistic research differs from research for production. The first CARD conference was launched by the University of Circus as an attempt to demystify artistic research in Circus.

Within the conference series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, the Circus Department at the School of Dance and Circus, part of Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts), Sweden, is now accepting proposals for the second conference of Circus Arts Research and Development.
