A vital forum of exchange and connection for contemporary circus artists, companies, presenters, and professionals, the International Market of Contemporary Circus (MICC) is a key annual point of encounter for the circus world since 2015.

Starting in July 2020, the MICC will take on a digital dimension by offering online programming from July 6 to 9. Following this launch period, with a goal of facilitating long-term connection, dialogue, and collaboration in our sector, the MICC Online will continue as an ongoing platform, featuring regular (monthly) online programming such as pitch sessions, working group meetings, and more. By signing up for the MICC, you not only register for MICC online activities in July (and beyond)—you also become a member of the new MICC network, a year-round community devoted to the creation, presentation, and touring of contemporary circus in North America and around the world.
