On Saturday the 8th of December 2018, the first edition of TENT TALKS: talks, food, circus (and maybe aerobics) will take place. This is a chance for circusmakers in the Netherlands to meet, talk and exchange.

We believe it's important to bring together the different circusmakers spread around the country to get to know each other and create an atmosphere of mutual support. Not because we're all the same but because despite our differences we all call ourselves 'circusmakers' and circus is something we want to keep developing in this country. With this event we want to take a snapshot of the contemporary Dutch scene to show it in all its diversity. So if you want to be a part of #TFC(AMAE), answer to the call and see you on the 6th of June. The goal is to contribute to the dialogue on circus in the Netherlands by giving space to the voice of the makers. Benjamin Kuitenbrouwer, Camiel Corneille, Camille Paycha and Michiel Deprez signed up for this edition and have curated an afternoon and evening never to forget.

TENT talks is an annually held seminar about the development of the circus in The Netherlands, with the first edition to be held in June 2018. The TENT talks will be set up by curators, circus makers and artists who work in The Netherlands. Especially now, because of the importance to bring up the subjects that are coming from the people on the floor.
