We, Common Ground, are organized as a collective. We take decisions together about artistic choices as well as about all organizational questions. Tasks are shared between us and every one of us supports the group in the best way possible, doing what each is best at.

We all met at the Academy for Circus and Performance Art in Tilburg, the Netherlands, where most of us did our circus studies. For quite some years we have performed in different shows, projects and companies as solo or duo artists. In 2015, we decided to bring together our experiences, visions and skills to create a performance based on the common ground of this specific group.
