Festival du Cirque de demain 2016

Unusual work for Hk Visuals, but not so unusual for Blackdough. Yes, I used to cover events regularly, but my photography goals and projects have deviated my path away from this type of work. Yes, I used to do photo reports on events such as hip hop battles and music festivals, but it now belongs to the past.

So why did I change my mind? Well, as you might already know, the circus is slowly taking an important part in my series "InMotion" and, since I'm a complete stranger to the circus world, I just could not miss one of the world's biggest French circus rendezvous of the year.

4 days during which, tomorrow's uprising talents selected from around the world perform for a medal. The festival "Cirque de demain" is an unmissable competition for young promising aspiring circus artists. I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the entire festival and I must say that this 37th edition was incredible.

I, of course, had my camera with me so, without further ado, here are a few pictures of the festival.

Please head to the festival's website for further information.

Huge thanks to Anyway Management and the festival "Cirque de demain" for this amazing weekend.
