    Description and Application Information:
    The research project Zirkus | Wissenschaft invites applications for the first ever Residency for contemporary circus artists at the University of Münster. Its aim is to open the dialogue between artistic practice and academic reflection by combining an academic masterclass with an artist residency.

Within five days, you will receive feedback on your in-progress piece to which you can react immediately and further develop the work in collaboration with the students. At the end of the residency there will be a work-in-progress presentation in which both students and artists* will report on their experiences.
