Update on the current situation in relation to the corona virus

Due to the situation of the Covid 19 virus and considering that Critical Costume 2020 is five months away, the team of Costume Agency and Critical Costume have decided to wait for another month following how the situation will evolve before making any changes to the plans for the event. At this point it seems that the situation is fluid so any attempt to plan in the long term is still unclear. The team will continue working on the preparation of the event towards the planned dates.

On April 15th we expect to have a clearer picture and we will publish updates regarding whether the event will need to be postponed.

Please follow the websites of and

Meanwhile, we encourage the selected conference speakers to further develop their papers and the workshop participants to develop their plans for the workshops with the dancers/actors.

For persons that need a confirmation of participation in order to apply for support to travel or in order to apply for visa, we will process these consecutively. Please contact us regarding this.
