Articulture / BLOCK tour dates summer 2016 

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Motionhouse and NoFit State Circus’s brand new, mind-blowing show ‘BLOCK’ is coming to four locations in the west of Mid Wales this August!

Organised by Articulture, and supported by The Magic Lantern Cinema and Natural Resources Wales – this amazing performance involves twenty oversized blocks which are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore. What happens when dance and circus collide? When they converge, rub against each other, blend into one another?

XTRAX spotlight on Wales + new Welsh section to Xtrax outdoor arts directory

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Until July, outdoor arts producers XTRAX are collaborating with Articulture to spotlight the finest contemporary outdoor arts unique to Wales on the XTRAX Directory – a free International Directory of Outdoor Arts and Circus, with over 1000 artists listed.

The Directory is the most visited part of XTRAX’s website and is used by bookers across the world to find shows for their programme.

Head on over to the XTRAX Directory and find which Welsh artists they are featuring and read their profile to find out technical information and to see videos and pictures; you’ll also find the contact details of each and every artist, so if you are a booker, feel free to contact them directly to find out about availability and cost.

Recently Xtrax have been making some improvements to this essential resource, making it even easier for promoters to search for artists and shows for their programme.
