If you are a UK based artist or company interested in participating in Spotlight UK Circus please express your interest by completing the form below.
Spotlight UK Circus will feature at Festival OFF d’Avignon in summer 2018. (Companies have been chosen for the showcases at CIRCa and Subcase). Please apply if you are interested in presenting high quality tour-ready work at the Circus Village site at Festival OFF d’Avignon, and to benefit from mentoring on international touring from NoFit State Circus. Companies who have previously submitted expressions of interest will be considered for this call-out and need not re-apply.
In the first instance your application will be assessed by a panel of UK industry professionals. The final selection of artists will be made by NoFit State but there will be detailed discussion with each company as a financial risk is involved at Festival OFF d’Avignon.
Shortlisted companies will be notified in August 2017 at which point we will require more detailed information about your work.
Please be aware that whilst Spotlight UK Circus will underwrite most of the direct costs, OFF d’Avignon is a fringe event and ultimate successes and final financial settlements will depend on ticket sales. The deadline for applying to be considered for Festival OFF d’Avignon is 31st July 2017. We can only accept applications from UK based companies.
If you have any questions, please contact Bethan Touhig-Gamble at NoFit State Circus bethan[at]nofitstate.com.
