During this work-in-progress evening, artists show parts of their unfinished work!
After each presentation, the artists have ten minutes on stage to ask their questions - to you!
With this format, we want to support artists in their creation process and offer them the opportunity for valuable exchange and feedback, as well as a stage for the presentation of their work before the premiere.
Length: 45 minutes + 10 minutes talk
From age of ten
"LP" (Long Play) is a visual and acoustical underworld hidden behind the mask of everyday life; a portal to our dreams and fears, where errors are celebrated and human fragility is embraced.
Wires, software, high-heeled shoes and a beard. The bodies strain under tricks of light and sound, political speeches, cellphones and pop icons. On the eve of the apocalypse, Long Play is a cry of resistance that pays tribute to the generation of the new millennium, raising the questions of today’s society.
The company was founded in 2017 while the two artists were studying at the Lido (Toulouse). Since then they have been working together on new performative formats, deconstructing gender roles and entering abstract musical worlds. Long Play is in the pre-selection of Circusnext 2020-21.
"LP" is shortlisted company of circusnext 2020-21.
This year, the selection for the work-in-progress took place within the European platform circusnext, which is dedicated to the promotion of artists in the field of contemporary circus.
The WIP evening is supported by the "circusnext platform", which is co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the EU.
