Workspace circus arts PERPLX supports artists who are at the beginning of their creative career and want to create an indoor performance (hall, tent or indoor locations).
PERPLX refers to young makers as emerging, not age-related. Which means that both recent graduates and new makers are welcome.
With these makers, a long-term, tailor-made process is developed, until structural applications are made.
Feel free to contact the artistic coordinator if you are unsure whether you are eligible.

After that, a more in-depth conversation is planned to see whether a collaboration is possible for both parties.
PERPLX offers presentation platforms to both the young, fledgling work and the more established work.
PERPLX organizes meaningful and/or interesting (reference) performances throughout the cultural season, preferably co-produced by PERPLX and at the beginning of their play series under the heading SOIREE PERPLX.
