We are looking forward to meet you all again in Germany for '360° - Circus Performance Analysis'!
UpSideDown—Circus and Space
June 28–30 2017
University of Münster, Germany
“In acrobatics, we say that we are lost, that is, we do not know whether it’s the top or the bottom, whether we are climbing or falling.”
This conference examines the question of space in the context of traditional, new, and contemporary circus through the lens of semiotics. Fields such as Liminal Spaces, Theories of Place and Space, Borders and Border Crossing, Performing in and Mapping Space, and Transnational Spaces may also be considered. Its aim is to deepen the knowledge obtained at the previous conference “Semiotics of the Circus” (2015), which was organized by the research project Zirkus|Wissenschaft at the University of Münster, Germany.
