ESP - EMMA SERJEANT PERFORMANCE
Emma Serjeant is an internationally renowned circus maker with a distinctive style. Creating original circus works permeated by a raw, compelling presence and honesty, Emma believes that circus is the contemporary genre of her time and considers it a dynamic and unique art form that displays great strength, courage and discipline.
It's been a busy few months for ESP!
Grace premiered in Brisbane and then went onto the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it was nominated for a TotalTheatre Award. Only 4 shows are lucky enough to be short listed in the 'circus' category at a festival with 50,266 performances of 3,269 shows in 294 venues across Edinburgh..I do not envy the judges job!
ESP is hugely honoured to be on such a short list and with such fine company. The other nominees were Ockhams Razor (UK) with "Tipping Point," Gandini Jugglers collaboration with "Water on Mars" (UK) and "Perhaps Hope" by Company Here and Now (AUS).
September is a busy month for ESP, with 2 new creations happening.
In Brisbane, M.I.N.D.E.D by Elements Collective gets it's first outing at their home in Fortitude Valley and in Melbourne, international dance and circus collaboration TRASHED comes alive!
A massive thank you to CircusOZ and the Circus Spot for hosting our first creative residency.
