In these uncertain times we are even more happy to receive hopeful news. We are granted the Nieuwe makersregeling for circus and dance artists Marta & Kim. This means that as of August they will receive financial support for two years which will enable them to develop themselves as co-authors. Festival Circolo will collaborate on the trajectory as our main partner.
Marta and Kim: ‘We are very excited and thankful for the support of the Nieuwe makersregeling. In these strange times when all our work is getting cancelled and postponed into the unkown future, the Nieuwe makersregeling provides a frame that allows us to make plans and continue. It makes our future more tangible, and is a great incentive for us to keep moving and creating.´
Marta and Kim have a background in respectively circus and dance, which sparked into a blooming collaboration. They create work that surpasses the frames of their original disciplines and starts from the physical communication between them. That´s why Dansateliers and Festival Circolo, each with their specific expertise, offer the ideal base to further develop their movement language and artistic signature.
De Nieuwe Makersregeling is a subsidy strand offered by the Performing Arts Fund that allows young artists to develop themselves over a longer trajectory. The first performance that will be created as a part of the Nieuwe Makersregeling is the trio Fase. If the current situation allows it to happen, Fase will premier in the frame of Festival Circolo in October.
