Ride & Camp

The project

Ride & Camp is a travelling project for 2019 which consists of getting in touch with partners from Central and South-Eastern Europe to create forums for dialogue and artistic initiatives.

It’s all about being on the road and connecting our starting point with several destinations of Central and South-Eastern Europe (Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania…), by taking with us what constitutes the company “Un loup pour l’homme”: its members, circus tent, shows, vehicles, know-how, interest in new encounters and sharing as well as its natural taste for celebration.

We will meet energies, organizations, artists, institutions, here and there. The point is to get to know those who would like to support emergence of contemporary circus in this region. We will participate to the global movement by accompanying the development of activities and projects that local actors are implementing, by planting new seeds, encouraging new possible paths.

In some cities, we will set up our camp and pitch our circus tent. In this way, we set up a temporary location to give life and space to artistic initiatives and interactions: the core of our project.

 

With our local partners, we will create these forums of artistic meetings and present our shows, invite theirs, organise workshops, ensure togetherness and make sure we are visible as much as possible and attract the most people at each one of our events. We will also encourage contact with the local community.

A project led by Un Loup pour l’Homme (FR), Cirkusfera (RS) and Cirkorama (CRO), in collaboration with Cirkokrog (SLO) and ZPC Zagrebački Plesni Centar (CRO), with support of French Institute, Teatroskop network and Ville de Lille (FR).
