IN’8 CIRCLE

In’8 circle is a production powerhouse dedicated to the fields of theatre, dance and circus. It is a resource center for thinking about development, setting up an organization or creating management and decision-making tools. From the accompaniment of « permanent » companies to one-off work days with artistic teams in transition or companies in the process of structuring, a whole range of working methods is invented.

Formed in 2010, the company supports artists with the development of their projects and their careers.

PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATION

Since 2013, in’8 circle • maison de production has been involved with the FAIAR’s, [Higher Education for Art in Public Space] in the field of professional insertion.

in’8 circle devised this mechanism in collaboration with the FAIAR team to raise the question of the integration to professional networks from the outset and to provide a methodology for students in the form of tutoring during and after their training period.

The program is developed in two parts:
– intervention during training for all apprentices.
– individual and collective post-training support for apprentices.

In 2021-2022, in’8 circle is setting up a tutoring system for the 14 apprentices of the 8th promotion who will graduate in 2021, with a volume of 350 hours of intervention.

CO-OP [2012-2018]

in’8 circle • maison de production initiated the CO-OP in 2012. The CO-OP operates as a process of innovative work, a common space of research around the themes of structure, development and the production of live performance. The core aim of this project is to create a circle of « co-artists », of generations, of aesthetics and production networks as diverse as possible. First and foremost, the CO-OP engages with artists. Its scope of activity encompasses the areas of dance, theatre, circus and puppetry.

SUPERÉSIDENCE [2018]

In the process of « meeting », the artist creates a network of practices and practitioners. He opens himself to the diffusion of his creative universe. He explores the idea of multidisciplinarity and possible collaborations outside his region, his territory. He meets his colleagues, tomorrow’s European partners. An ephemeral group of emerging artists accompanied by the partner structures has been formed, without any final objective.

This itinerant supeResidency proposed a stop-work session in each partner place/city. The stops were an opportunity to move towards a common proposal and to organize meetings with creators, structures and local projects.

THEME : North-South itinerancy

4 places, 4 stops, 4 itinerant and multidisciplinary weeks
