TENT house for contemporary circus

Become Maker for a day
Present your circus act or work in progress at Back to Base open stage

TENT house for contemporary circus in Amsterdam launches an open call for (starting) circus artists with their practice in the Netherlands. For the thirteenth time, the Back to Base stage is a breeding ground for artists who want to test an act or fragment of maximum 10 minutes in front of an audience and professionals. We keep the stage requirements to a minimum; the focus is on artistic quality and content: Back to Base.

We call on circus artists who have been working for a while, have just graduated or are still in training. Also performing artists with affinity to circus are welcome. Each participant of the open stage receives a daily fee (according to the Collective Labour Agreement) and a compensation for travel expenses. Fill in the google form before March 5, 2023. 

TENT house for contemporary circus is a production house. We form a close community with our makers and are committed to a flourishing circus climate. We stimulate and support circus talent in the Netherlands in different stages of their development.
