CIRCOSTANCES is a writing project discussing circus arts from a contemporary point of view. Through written essays, the project aims to raise awareness of both academic and artistic research in the field of circus to facilitate local discourses. Launched in 2017, CIRCOSTANCES is as of today one of its kind in the Finnish contemporary circus scene and has already been followed with institutional actions targeting the field's lack of research opportunities.
The project strives to contribute to the development of common terminology, points of reference, and overall awareness of contemporary circus discourses in Finland. In the absence of a university-level education program in circus arts, the project aims to facilitate dialogue and raise interest in circus arts across artistic and institutional frameworks.
Starting from 2019, CIRCOSTANCES is looking forward to facilitate discussion also in the form of organising seminars on circus arts research with international experts of their fields of study.
