Apply now to pitch in July! Despite the cancellation of the festival Montréal Complètement Cirque, the MICC (International Market of Contemporary Circus) will take place in an online form. The MICC is a vital forum of exchange and connection for contemporary circus artists, companies, presenters, and professionals.
Artists, producers, & agents working in the field of contemporary circus are invited to submit proposals for the MICC virtual Tour de Piste activities.
The virtual Tour de Piste events will be online sessions in which contemporary circus artists and companies from all around the world will pitch their shows and/or concepts to an audience of venue and festival programmers.
This call is open to professional circus companies with a touring history. Individual artists will be considered if they regularly tour full-length circus works.
The first sessions will be held from July 6 to 9, 2020. We will hold monthly sessions from that point forward.
What types of projects are accepted?
To reflect our current realities, the online Tour de Piste will accept pitches of the following types: 1) Tour-ready full-length contemporary circus productions (highest priority), 2) Full-length contemporary circus productions which are currently in a creation phase, 3) Full-length contemporary circus productions which are currently in a concept phase, 4) Your artistic response to the current circumstances, 5) Your proposed circus-based public/community engagement/outreach strategy/activity.
Is there a deadline to submit? No, projects will now be accepted on a rolling basis, with a monthly selection process. However, to be considered for the first July sessions, submit your project by June 14.
