What is ICCAR?
A nomadic geographical and artistic space
ICCAR is an ongoing training project for circus artists and this will be its second edition.
ICCAR is not a school nor an occasional workshop; it offers an artistic training programme for professionals who are willing to challenge their intuitions and artistic visions with several creators – equipped with their own understanding, practice and savoir-faire –, for whom research and creation are inseparable.
ICCAR strives to be a space-time continuum in which circus creation professionals are welcome to explore, experiment and dialogue through practice throughout several months. A space-time continuum in which to question (oneself) and explore (oneself) through several issues linked to the creation of a circus performance.
Who is it for?
ICCAR is aimed at emerging circus artists with excellent artistic and technical skills who are willing to delve into the different artistic aspects at play in the creation of a contemporary circus performance: dramaturgy, movement, the connection with the object and/or partner, music, lighting, space. In this regard, ICCAR focuses on circus artists who are developing their projects as circus authors.
We understand that emerging artists are people who have just finished training at a professional circus school and also artists who are taking the first steps in their careers as circus authors.
ICCAR is intended for artists who are willing to combine their personal research with a collective learning experience and develop their own practice and performance from a multidisciplinary perspective.
The training offered by ICCAR is organised in 6 modules; candidates who commit to completing the whole training process will be given priority.
Participants will be selected through this call which is opened to both Spanish and international artists.
In the artistic selection we will strive to have a balance among the different genres, as well as diversity in artistic identities and home areas of the participants.
