03.-08.07.2012: SummerFlame - Festival of Fire and Moving Arts, Vienna, Austria
In the first week of July 2012 we organize an international performing art festival in Vienna:
SummerFlame - festival of Circus and Performing art. The festival playfully combines the fascinating arts of fire juggling with other performing arts such as circus, dance, acrobatics, theatre, object manipulation, music and transmedia / performance art. During one week participants from all over the world are offered a vast program of master class workshops. Furthermore there are contemporary performances and concerts during the evenings.
The festival aims to offer artists from different cultural and disciplinary backgrounds the opportunity to collaborate and exchange skills, creation methods and artistic ideas. We hope to contribute to the further development of contemporary circus in Austria. The festival is a non profit event organised in collaboration with volunteers and local artists And co-funded by Institut Français Autriche und Wien 3420 AG.
ACCESSIBILITY This year we have the opportunity to collaborate with the association Equalizent: By offering sign language translations during the workshops as well as the performances we hope to make the festival and its programme more attractive to deaf artists and audiences.
