Spotlight UK Circus is an opportunity for UK contemporary circus artists to showcase work at three international festivals/showcases: CIRCa festival du cirque actuel, Festival OFF d’Avignon and Subcase.
The project is led by NoFit State Circus in Cardiff and Crying Out Loud in London, and funded by the Arts Council England International Showcasing Fund. Its aims are to raise the profile of UK contemporary circus on the international scene, increase the capacity and ability of UK companies to promote themselves and tour internationally, and develop and support a new network of touring contemporary circus companies.
Subcase 2017 presented four projects in the framework of Spotlight UK Circus:
