Beside performing and producing “performances which present a new approach to contemporary circus art and stretch performing art boundaries”, ROOM 100 is undergoing different projects that aim at introducing contemporary circus, its history and importance, to wider audiences in Croatia through HALA 100, a residency place for contemporary circus (first of its kind in Croatia and ex-Yugoslavia, opened in June 2015), hosting international contemporary circus artists and circus movies screenings, as well as thematic exhibitions.
