Future Artists is delighted to be offering viewers the chance to see the film, Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal – for a limited period only – on Daily Motion.

It’s already got 10,000 views in 24 hours   – a joy for everyone involved, especially for director Naomi Smyth!

Smyth provides a no-holds-barred look into the world of street art and performance in the groundbreaking documentary movie, Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal.

And now it’s free to watch on the world second largest and most popular video website – Daily Motion – with a view to getting 1 million hits.

‘Invisible Circus: No Dress Rehearsal’ is about a local arts group in Bristol who receive no funding – and fund themselves, riskily, by squatting. Daringly, they take on urban spaces and dilapidated shop fronts in order to create one of the most spectacular circus shows in the UK – and the audience only got to know about it via text message.

Naomi Smyth followed the band of chancers for four years – and even became a part of the circus herself.

After just five months on the road, hundreds of DVDs and screenings right across the UK from London to Newcastle, Naomi Smyth’s seminal documentary about the artsquat group (a self-sustaining community of artists who take over unused buildings and transform them into community friendly performance venues) continues to inspire people across the UK, telling a story of how you can still make art that astounds people, no matter who you are, where you’re from, or how much money you’ve got.”

Director Smyth on her film: “I would hope that the film provides a window into the squatting world that I know – filled with practical, self-reliant people who hate waste and have a mission to creatively use things somebody else has discarded – from a building some property developer is keeping empty for commercial reasons to a truckload of theatre flats or shop dummies or even food from a skip.”

Have you ever felt inspired to create something out of nothing? Wanted to perform, paint, write, dance… cultivate a project without the funds? If you’ve ever had a creative idea rejected, or you simply,need that shot of inspiration to follow your dreams (no matter what society tells you!) then you need to watch this film.
