transitions: young artists

Aimed specifically at youth circus graduates and young artists (16-25) living, studying or working in Wales, who wish to pursue a professional career in circus

The Young Artists Transitions Project aims to bridge the gap between graduating from youth circus and the next steps of your career progression.  

Whether it means securing a place in a circus school in UK, Europe or further afield or by continuing independent training. The project will run over 12 months and offer:

Introducing different technical and creative approaches to circus. 

Act Creation Sessions

Performance Opportunities
As part of a NoFit State Youth Circus production of Circus Mundi. Courtyard Theatre, Circus Mundi will be performed as part of a Family Festival on the 31st of October in Hereford.

 Applications were received from young artists from all over Wales. To find our more about the Circus Mundi performance visit the project page, for updates on the activity of the successful cohort visit the our news section.
