Once again thoughts turn circus-wards as we embark on the 'getting money to make the show' bit of the process. Looking back at research and material made last year I am reminded at just how much we created and dissected and discussed during this R&D. And continuing conversations about performance and audience and theatre and art and the world and 'can we make a difference that really matters' and what is it to be a human now in the world and what is it to be a human making art and is there any point? And looking at this bumfp of material and reflecting back on what we created and looking forward to what we will create - I am excited and intrigued and a little daunted to see that this project is all about that; looking at the artist, the audience, the art and saying: yes, It is all worth it, because when the world is confused and antagonistic and insular - art doesn't care - it keeps on going. There has always been theatre and art and music and there will always be, no matter what is happening in the rest of the world, it is a human need: A physical, emotional, fundamental necessity to express and be expressed, to watch and be watched, to have space and time to exist in the present, to figure out what really matters. I think Circus WTF is on its way to figuring some of this stuff out.
