The company described by The Guardian as “the future of British Circus” returns to Bristol for the first time in 22 years, with critically acclaimed show ‘BIANCO’ in their iconic silver spaceship Big Top.
Developed with the Eden Project and directed by Firenza Guidi ‘BIANCO’ tickets are now on sale via www.creativecommon.co.uk
Esther O’Callaghan OBE, Acting Creative Producer, Creative Common, said “Creative Common 2013 will showcase the best of Bristol and welcome artists and audiences both local and international to the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone in a clear demonstration of how creativity can bring these public spaces to life”.
Complementing the launch event, Creative Common is delighted to welcome the team behind EAT DRINK BRISTOL FASHION to establish the first dedicated café on the common area.
Boasting locally-sourced, organic produce from producers across the South West, including Luke Hasell of The Story and Community Farm and a menu designed by renowned Michelin starred Bristol chef, Josh Eggleton, EAT DRINK EVENTS will be working alongside Creative Common as part of a drive to make Bristol the sustainable food capital of the UK.
Alun Owen, Bristol City Council Service Director, Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, said “We are delighted that Creative Common are returning to Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone. They have a new team at the helm and we’re really impressed with their plans for this season. To kick off the season with No Fit State Circus is a real coup and will set the standard high.
It’s been proven that in major regeneration projects like ours it’s important to use the spaces we’ve got for creative and cultural activities, to raise the profile of the area and drive people into it in the short term – and doing things creatively and a bit differently is something Bristol is really good at. Other Enterprise Zones around the UK will be watching our creative programme with interest”.
Doug Francis, Creative Director, The Invisible Circus, said “We are really excited to launch the Creative Common 2013 season with the latest show from our friends `No Fit State Circus.’ It’s a great way to open the season and for Bristol to have a company of their stature back here after 22 years with a touring show like ‘Bianco’”.
Supported by Arts Council England, the Creative Common outline programme will be announced at the end of April 2013.
