About the Event

In the wake of COVID-19, Circus Artists are looking to the digital realm - for new income streams; to market their work, to maintain their connection to the circus community; to share skills; to join important discussions; to continue teaching; and to nurture their love of all things circus. We talk to some circus artists who have been doing this as a key part of their careers for many years, and others who are just starting to expand their presence in the digital world. Together, we will explore the opportunities and issues involved. 

Chair 

El Kirshbaum, High Wire Entertainment (Gluttony, Rouge. Rebel).
