Split acrobats in French competition finals

place: France
Split circus artists Antonia Kuzmanic and Jakov Labrovic have entered the "Jeunes Talents Cirque Europe" competition in France. It is an artistic support programme for emerging creators in the circus-arts field in Europe aimed at assisting artistic research and creation in that field.

The project has been funded with support from the European Commission (EC).

The selection committee of Jeunes Talents Cirque Europe has accepted 34 projects among 151 submissions.

Artists are asked to present a model during a maximum time of 20 minutes that is followed by an interview with the selection committee during which they express their desires and expectations.

Following the selections, the permanent selections committee will select the ten artistic teams that will be supported by Jeunes Talents Cirque. They will be selected in March 2010.
