Art in Transit.

Exploring a Mobility Perspective on Contemporary Circus Practice

Reichsratsstraße 17, 6. Stock, 1010 Wien, Österreich


While circus is commonly associated with romanticized images of big tents, caravans and family businesses, a high number of today's contemporary performers face a very different reality. Elena Lydia Kreusch sheds light on these changed socio-economic conditions and examines the relationship between artist's mobility experiences and their artistic practice.

Elena Lydia Kreusch is a freelance artist and producer. She directs the contemporary circus companies Squarehead Productions and KreativKultur. She studied International Development Studies at the Universities of Vienna and Novi Sad (Master thesis: Circus Nomads: Space – Home – Identity) and Cultural Development and Project Management at the University Lumière Lyon II (Master thesis: Scree Circus. Analysis of an intermedial phenomena). She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Theatre, Film and Media Studies at the University of Vienna and a recipient of a DOC fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and ÖAW/IFK_Junior Fellow.
