Who is it for?

ICCAR is aimed at emerging circus artists with excellent artistic and technical skills who are willing to delve into the different artistic aspects at play in the creation of a contemporary circus performance: dramaturgy, movement, the connection with the object and/or partner, music, lighting, space. In this regard, ICCAR focuses on circus artists who are developing their projects as circus authors.

We understand that emerging artists are people who have just finished training at a professional circus school and also artists who are taking the first steps in their careers as circus authors.

ICCAR is intended for artists who are willing to combine their personal research with a collective learning experience and develop their own practice and performance from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Training offered by ICCAR is organised in 6 modules; professionals who commit to completing the whole training process will be given priority.

Participants will be selected by means of a call, open to both Spanish and international artists.

In the artistic selection we will strive to have a balance among the different genres, as well as diversity in artistic identities and home areas of the participants.

In 2022-2023, ICCAR gets underway with a pilot training programme for 12 artists.
