Frequently Asked Questions

Professional circus companies who create works for the international touring market. Individual artists will be considered if they regularly tour full-length circus works. Please note that projects not conceived for touring, circus acts, and amateur or student works are not accepted.

Pitch sessions are an important element of the MICC Annual Market each July, but online pitch sessions and coffee hours are now taking place on a more frequent basis throughout the year, often with a specific theme or focus.


Stay tunned for our ANNUEL MARKET line-up!


Artists and companies may always submit projects on a rolling basis via our platform (see link below). Ad hoc selection committees evaluate projects, and the MICC team notifies selected artists, in preparation for each session.



Only MICC members may submit a project, but there is no additional fee to submit or pitch.
