Audience Building program
In order to create platforms for Sarakasi’s performing artists, projects and other stakeholders and to reach out to a diverse audience, Sarakasi initiated its audience building program in 2003 by starting to organize small and big scale creative productions and events.
Apart from renting out the Dome to (cultural) stakeholders, regular features on Sarakasi’s Dome based own cultural agenda are, amongst others, Friday evening concerts providing a platform to Sarakasi artists, deejays, emcees and musicians, a monthly open mike Hip Hop event, a bi-monthly dance-circus fusion evening event and the annual Sawa Sawa multi disciplinary Festival. Through these activities Sarakasi strives to give its affiliated artists tools to manage their art, lives and careers more effectively and successfully.
Sarakasi stages its own circus dance fusion productions periodically at its own venue, the Sarakasi Dome. These productions are usually choreographed by Sarakasi trainers, acrobats and dancers. Most productions are themed with newly created work.
