PASS - Cross Channel Circus

Activate is part of an exciting Anglo/French project that has been designed to promote contemporary circus in the UK and France. PASS promotes circus as an art form through the production and presentation of new work and the touring of existing French and British shows. Within the project there are opportunities for emerging and mid career artists to develop their practice, raise their game and achieve wider exposure plus training opportunities for technicians working with contemporary circus artists.  Click on the links below the images for more information about Activate's work within the PASS project
