Risking it

Risking it – with Circus City and Groupe Bekkrell. Following the cancellation of The Bekkrell Effect, Circus City and Bristol Old Vic invite the audience to a panel discussion including artists from Groupe Bekkrell and Circus City Co-Director Lina B. Frank.

The panel will discuss elements of risk in circus performance.  How is circus different from other artforms in terms of risk? What does a cancellation such as this mean for the artists, festival and theatre? How does the circus sector work to minimise risks of injury and cancellation?

As part of the talk we will also hear from the artists about their artistic process and motivations for creating the show and about their lives as creatives.

This talk will be facilitated by Tanuja Amarasuriya.
Languages: in English and French with a translator.
