Circelation invites you to join a Conversation to discuss the narrative developments being explored in contemporary cross-artform circus

The Conversation will take place at West Yorkshire Playhouse, to coincide with their exciting new production of Monkey!, directed by a leading young director, Dominic Leclerc, who is dedicated to integrating aerial and acrobatic circus skills and choreography into his theatre productions.

Chaired by Rachel Clare of Crying Out Loud and one of the UK's leading circus producers, there will be a panel of nationally based artists (working across all scales), including Dominic, talking about the integration of physical circus skills and storytelling, and sharing some of their own practice in this area. There will also be a broader discussion around how the intricacies of this work and how it can be further supported and developed.

This event is for regionally based artistic directors / producers of venues, festivals and theatre/dance/circus companies, and those in strategic artistic development roles.

Please join us in the Congreve Room, West Yorkshire Playhouse www.wyp.org.uk between 4pm - 6pm on Wednesday 25 June 2008.

RSVP: Boudicca Maloney email labs@circelation.co.uk
(places will be allocated on a first come first served basis)
