TENT house for contemporary circus

CIRKLABO and TENT are joining forces to promote the diversity and inclusiveness of the circus field. One project that contributes to a more diverse circus landscape will be selected annually from the Open Calls starting in 2024. In 2024, this project is La Cosecha by Insurgentes Company.

TENT is one of the partners of the Circuscoalitie. With this partnership, we want to contribute to a good climate for the creation and presentation of circus in the Netherlands. The Cirruscoalitie is committed to stimulating talent, venues and audiences for circus. The partners are Rotterdam Circusstad, TENT, Korzo, Festival Circolo, Buro Piket in cooperation with MAAS theatre and dance, Circusbende Festival, De Schuur, Bijlmer Parktheater, Panama Pictures, Deventer op Stelten and the academies Codarts and Fontys. One of the initiatives is Great Catch, in which three original productions by fresh circus talent tour the Dutch theatres together.

Korzo's production house and TENT are acting as partners in talent development. Circus makers connected to TENT can increasingly be found on stage or in Korzo's studio. In turn, TENT guides Korzo's new circus maker from its expertise. This is in 2021 Michael Zandl with the production Sawdust Symphony. For this, Michael collaborates with juggler Kolja Huneck and diabolo and Cyr wheel specialist David Eisele.
