CAN was selected by Programa Pontes, brought forth by Oi Futuro and the British Council, to promote the exchange between Brazilian and British artists and companies. As such, part of the festival fosters knowledge exchange between Brazilian artists, National Centre for Circus Arts (London) professionals and Aerial Edge (Glasgow), among other artists and guests.
