ABOUT THE CIRCUS
The Circus Between Worlds
Walker & Bromwich’s Circus Between Worlds brings together a maverick troupe of artists. Starting it’s life in the ruins of the Iconic Alexander ‘Greek’ Thompson Church on Caledonian Rd in Glasgow, the Circus Between Worlds will appear out of the darkness as if an encampment has arrived in town, bringing with it a bizarre and eclectic collection of performers. A series of performance nights will take shape, hovering somewhere between the first hints of circus performed on village greens in rural France and the sentiment of death metal. The Circus Between Worlds seeks to rekindle the natural sense of awe which we remember from childhood; when fairies and elephants still frequented our doorsteps in dreams. But it does not forget the dark spaces and the nightmares.
Circus Between Worlds is a free-form learning environment, bringing together artists across the spectrum of their creative development, from established artists, recent graduates and students, in a familial frisson of ideas and energies, creating an open framework for pure expression while interrogating the particularity of site.
Artist including: Walker & Bromwich, Maria Fusco, David Sherry, Francis Thorburn, Jedrzej Cichosz, Urara Tsuchiya, Sion Parkinson, Richard Whitby & Sooyon Kim, La Malle des Indes, Emma Finn, Stasis, Edwin Li, Graham Mack, Susan Mowatt, Frankie Burr, Hazel Powell, Astrid Newman & Francesca Hawker and students from Edinburgh College of Art, Glasgow School of Art and Newcastle University.
