Keeping Audiences at the Centre of the Action


Circus and physical theatre are unique art forms with an astonishing diversity of aesthetic and context. Artists and makers of circus and physical theatre often have the strongest understanding of how to promote and sell their work: they know that a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t serve the art, or the audiences. This session explores how presenters and programmers can collaborate with artists and producers to connect with and build their audiences.

Speakers include Werner Schrempf (Artistic Director, La Strada Graz), Lisa Fa’alafi (Co-Director, Polytoxic), Dylan Singh (Artist/Curator, The Dreaming Project) and Alice Cadwell (General Manager, Spaghetti Circus & Festival Director, National Circus Festival), and the panel is facilitated by Simon Abrahams (Creative Director & CEO, Melbourne Fringe).
