Ontario Contemporary Circus Showcase

Happening in the Greenwin Theatre

In its inaugural year, the Ontario Contemporary Circus Showcase aims to bring together a wide array of contemporary circus artists from across Ontario to share works with local presenters and the public. Artists and presenters will network and collaborate through panel discussions a "speed dating" pitch session, and artists are also invited to presentations from local and national circus organizations.

The weekend culminates on Sunday, June 30, 2019, in a performance showcase. During this showcase audiences can expect to be amazed by feats of strength and agility, and expressions of artistic beauty from artists. Hosted by Toronto clowning duo Philip and Lucinda (Grand SaltoTheatre - Myque Franz and Zita Nyarady), performers will include attendees of Erin Ball's Amputee Circus Camp, the Lonely Child Project (Angola Murdoch, Stacie Dunlop, and Holly Treddenick), Rebecca Leonard and Amy Hull (A Girl in the Sky Productions and Thin Edge New Music Collective), Thomas Vaccaro (Peterborough Academy for Circus Arts), Mary-Margaret Scrimger, and Miranda S Tempest and Laura Griffin (Illuminair Entertainment).
