Killian Cog at Performing Arts Exchange!

October 6, 2015 Comments Off on Killian Cog at Performing Arts Exchange! Killian Cog, Stage Shows

Last week, at Performing Arts Exchange (PAE) by South Arts, “The Bizarre and Curious Quest of Killian Cog” creative team members Laura Witwer and Chris Delgado got to chat circus with a crackerjack panel of circus presenters and aficionados!

The panel was facilitated by Krista R. Bradley, Executive Director of BlackRock Center for the Arts.¬†Featured panelist¬†Nadia Drouin, Head of Programming Circus Arts for TOHU in Montreal (everyone’s dream circus space), spoke passionately about the emergence of contemporary circus and it’s place in the arts – it was thrilling! We also heard from several presenters about their experiences in bringing circus to their venues, and about why they’re so passionate about our art form.

We also got a chance to connect with Sydney Pepper Smith from the National Endowment for the Arts. Did you know that the NEA is now recognizing circus as it’s own, legitimate genre? Well, now you do! And it’s some of the best news we’ve heard in forever.

We reconnected with old friends, and made plenty of new ones. The future is looking bright and busy for Killian – and we couldn’t be more thrilled! How far would you go? Laura
