Community Engagement

The way in which we engage with the community is we run a variety of interactive circus workshops, our approach emphasises accessibility, teamwork and positive interaction.

Company can offer two different types of workshops to local community whilst on tour, a clowning/slapstick focused workshop and a circus skills workshop.
Each workshop can cater for up to 30 participants ages 6+ and lasts for an hour. Participants don't need any prior ability and will leave having learnt some of the moves they have seen in the show, creating a strong connection between the performance, the artists and their own experience.

Both workshops, like the show, place great emphasis on creative play and empower participants to carry this imaginative embodied experience into their lives beyond the workshop. Workshops encourage individuality in creation, embodiment of skills and interpretation meaning that even once the company have left, participants can continue creation and play which encourages self sustaining creative communities.
