CASTING CALL
for circus artists!

REPUBLIQUE TEATER from Copenhagen opens a casting call to find 4 circus artists to be a part of the Fibonacci Project 2011 Scandinavian Edition, a multidisciplinary creation and international cooperation project in collaboration with the Canadian circus company LES 7 DOIGTS DE LA MAIN.
THE FIBONACCI PROJECT:

Original idea of Les 7 Doigts de la Main, the Fibonacci Project is an ambitious initiative based on international collaboration and driven by the belief that through artistic expression we can build bridges between cultures and promote a greater sense of solidarity.
The name of the project refers to the famous Fibonacci sequence discovered by Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci in the early 13th century: {0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21…}. This sequence which produces the Golden Number is the red thread of the whole project.
The objective of the project is the creation of a multidisciplinary show based on collaborations between artists from different art forms and cultures. The creation residency in Copenhagen is an intense marathon of three weeks where the Canadian artists will collaborate with the Scandinavian artists to create a show that will be presented for one month at the Republique The Fibonacci project 2011 Scandinavian Edition will aim towards the creation of a complete and unique show based on recurring structures and guidelines permanent and developed to the Fibonacci project.
