BETA CIRCUS aims to disseminate new trends in contemporary circus and to create training opportunities for artists in current relevant artistic dimensions. For two years, BETA CIRCUS provided opportunities for the European audience to get in touch with "magie nouvelle", through live shows and specialized actionss. As a European cooperation project, supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, aimed to develop a new international vision dedicated to the capacity building process of contemporary emerging artists who seek innovative works, trends and languages in the circus universe, with a special focus on peripheral European countries and with a lesser degree of recognition of this domain in the context of contemporary performing arts. A group of 12 participants traveled through four countries - Serbia, Italy, Portugal and Latvia - for a training program through experience, led by expert mentors in contemporary illusionism and opening points of contact and interaction capable of stimulating artistic careers, creating opportunities for transnational cooperation.
