past and present

For the foreseeable future we will not create any new live works under the name of circumstance. The creative team is still active however, to get in touch about commissioning new projects please contact . Feel free to also get in touch if you are interested in presenting any of our existing works.

This website will now be focused on distributing our ongoing book and software projects.

From 2010 – 2016 we made intimate in-ear stories, subtlemobs, pedestrian symphonies, science fiction theatre , music, and books that go beyond the page.

We often said our work was cinematic, but we almost never made films.

We tried to work with the narrative of experience, the politics of public space, sound and mobile technology.

We wrapped our questions up in melancholy and romance.

We didn’t do jokes.

Circumstance was established in 2010 as a framework for the collaborations of Duncan Speakman, Sarah Anderson and Emilie Grenier. It is currently a limited company registered in the UK, primarily based at the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol but working between Bristol, London and Ghent.
