ISACS members representing internationally

ISACS are delighted to announce that we have been instrumental in securing opportunities for several of our members to present, pitch and perform ideas for their new forthcoming work to a number of international programmers and promoters this month.

Alex Allison presented his new piece Maleta at the 'Thé des Artistes' in Paris last week during the Hautes Tension Festival to over 40 international programmers, promoters and supporters of these art forms.

Tumble Circus, Lords of Strut and Lulu's World have been invited to present their work at Canvas a conference coordinated by London's leading Circus venues at the end of April.

Really starting to get Irish artists recognised beyond our shores...how exciting!!
