We are looking for four artists in their early career to take part in an international hip hop/circus project 2018!

Are you a street dancer or circus artist in your early career available for a performance in Hangaren Subtopia in April 2018? Read this!

Union Black is an upcoming performance created in partnership between Subtopia, Crying Out Loud, Far From The Norm, Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde and Cork Midsummer Festival.

Union Black will explore hip hop, circus, dance and football. The hip hop theatre collective Far From The Norm will create the performance, together with already selected circus artists, choreographer Botis Seva and circus director Gaëtan Levêque. Their research and development work has already started. The artists that we are now calling for will enter later in the process, to participate and perform in 2 shows in Hangaren Subtopia in April 2018.

Who are we looking for?

Street dancers and circus artists, who are interested in a cross-over with street dance and circus. We would like to warmly welcome and encourage women and artists with non-binary gender identity to apply.

Artists with high level skills, a strong stage presence, willingness to challenge themselves and a quick learning mind.

For circus artists: It is not required to have past experience from street dance styles, although it is welcomed. There will be an exploration of street dance qualities on circus apparatus, why being open minded is very valuable.

For street dancers: It is required to be open to explore circus and be familiar with acrobatics, because movement on different circus apparatus will be explored. It is welcomed to have experience from different street dance styles.
