2013 marks the 8th edition of The Flying Circus Project. Established in 1996, the Flying Circus Project is a major programme exploring creative expression in Asia. Since 2007, artists from Europe, North America and Asia have been travelling together to two different sites, interacting with the cities, localities and contexts.
In 2013, the Flying Circus Project will be in Myanmar and Singapore, with a focus on Myanmar artists and contemporary expressions including performance and films, reflecting on the themes of memory, trauma and transition.
The Flying Circus Project hallmark, SUPERINTENSE – a marathon of presentations by the artists – is held over four days. SUPERINTENSE is a marathon of personal strategies of creativity in the urban context, in our worlds, and is a hallmark of the Flying Circus Project. The artists each have one hour to present their work and their practice to themselves and a public audience. Their presentations take a variety of forms including performance, lectures and screenings.
