circus re:searched is an Austrian-Swiss-German cooperation project aiming at supporting and connecting emerging artists in the field of contemporary circus. The project is jointly carried out by the organizations KreativKultur (AT), Berlin Circus Festival (DE) and Cirqu’Aarau (CH). It follows selected circus artists in the German speaking region in their respective processes of research and creation - thus providing a profound engagement with different artistic practices. A special focus lies on artistic innovation and on working at the intersection of circus and other disciplines (e. g. dance, fine arts, digital media).

Over the course of 2019, the selected artists take part in different formats such as residencies, feedback-rounds, watch&talks and performances in all three countries. Diverse forms of communication and diffusion further help to give local circus scenes greater visibility and enhance the creation of long lasting ties with their audiences.
