by Angeliki Meli
The circus apparatus is this space, in which the circus artist grows up and spent most of their time. What turns this space in to a space of intimacy, in to a dwelling, is the memories, the smell, the personal freedom of expressing our selves inside it and the desire of returning.
It is the Balkan sound that still exists between the mountains, the waving of the threads, the grotesque body that has been shaken between the ground and the sky.
During her residency in the building of island Angeliki is trying to expand this intimacy space between her and her discipline and turn it in into a place of being, into a dwelling.
Program (Tuesday – Wednesday- Thursday)
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday: 17.00-19.00 this is not the right nose: invitation to participants to create with the help of Angeliki the shape of their nose
Wednesday 25th +Thursday 26th: 12.00-14.00 this is not the right rope: invitation to participants to be part of the construction of a new rope (aka connector)

All the days are part of an ongoing process that tries to understand where the inspiration is coming from.

Masters programme in Contemporary Circus Practises
The Master’s Programme in Contemporary Circus Practices, 120 credits, at University of Dance and Circus (DOCH) in Stockholm (Sweden), is aimed at practicing circus artists who want to deepen their circus technique, develop new forms of circus and contribute to the dialogue/discussion in the contemporary art field. The programme prepares students for artistic research.
Circus City has invited Angeliki Meli and Tomas Vaclavek, students of the circus MA to spend time researching during the festival. Audiences will be welcome to enter their spaces to immerse themselves in the student’s research.
