BNCN both lead and partner on a variety of projects and initiatives which form part of delivering our overall strategic ambition for Circus Arts in the Baltic and Nordic Region.

Co-presented with Subtopia as part of official programme of Subcase:

Seminar: Circus as Outsider
Cirkör House, Tuesday 14 November 15.30-16.30

As contemporary circus grows as an artform and becomes increasingly diverse, there is also an increase in the number of debates and ideas around inclusivity and exclusivity in relation to circus. When we “run away with the circus” what do we leave behind? When art is made ‘”for everyone”, who does it refer to? Can outsiders mobilise change?

Baltic Nordic Circus Network invites you to the seminar ”Circus as Outsider” which explores the concept of inclusiveness and exclusiveness approached from vastly different angles.

Key speakers: Vicki Amedume (United Kingdom) and Ivan Kralj (Croatia)
With introduction from coordinator Lina B. Frank


Wednesday 15 November 20.00-01.00
Södra Teatern Bar
Baltic Nordic Circus Network invites the Subcase participants to an evening mingle in the beautiful Södra Teatern Bar. If you are hungry, we warmly recommend having dinner in the Södra Teatern restaurant.
