Lab:time

Experiments in circus

Lab:time is our programme for innovation and experimentation in the Circus Arts, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Through Lab:time individual artists and companies are able to secure research and development time in the Creation Studio at the National Centre for Circus Arts, as well as small but significant amounts of seed funding to support the first stages of exploration.

By offering artists the means to explore their ideas at the very beginning of the creative process it is our aim to generate a critical mass of creative development that will, over time, generate an increase in the quality and quantity of new circus-based performance across the UK.

Although the space we offer is at the National Centre in London, we welcome applications for Lab:time Funding from artists across the UK.

Lab:time applications are now open.

Applications for Lab:time Round 11 (October – December 2017) are now open and will close at 5pm Monday 3 July 2017.
