The world is larger than the dimension one can perceive by all physical senses.
What we see is not all that we can know. We will explore the myth of the planet as the basis for human beings in which we experience the familiar and the unexpected in order to see what we can make out of our reaction to what we have. The past and the future; hot and cold, hard and soft, hate and love, expensive and cheap, risky and safe, limited and unlimited. What else matters to us as an individual, physically and spiritually? The myth is fenced in by endless factors that build up conditions to continue our breathing and entertaining journey. We will see what an artist can cook-up for us from their existence as a human being, no one is an exception from those common grids, and the artists will use these with their art as the main ingredient. The expedition on the dual world, its parallel consequences will hurt, surprise or satisfy us. Painful and enjoyable life journeys could either make us capable of balancing ourselves or drive us towards loosing our balance. The project will demonstrate the process of each individual artist synchronizing their responses to particular physical conditions regarding the concept with their art as their second nature on top of their first nature as a basic living-creature fighting for survival. This combination within the human dimension is not limited by geographical and physicalconditions. We are turning limitation into creation, invention, stimulation,experimentation and potentially revolution.

Circus Terminal will endeavour to turn the world’s individual components into one delicious cake that will celebrate the differences and similarities of all human beings and who they are through their art.
This is a radical ongoing project that brings together artists with highly varied backgrounds, irrespective of whether they have been to art school or not. Scheduled to depart from boundaries from all across the globe, the show will be gathering evidence of life journeys. Coming to your town soon, we aim to build new relations and spread the idea of artistic self-reliance. Local artists at each of our ‘Stops’ will be taking part.
