Over the past 18 years we have developed a unique style & process of making theatre from the language of circus. The goal of our training & workshops is to educate and inform about the possibilities of contemporary circus and to inspire a new generation to explore their own creative voices.

We can devise workshops for all ages, experience and backgrounds, those with no prior experience to students and professionals. We welcome participation from disabled people and injured performers who want to explore alternative ways of engaging in their art.

We can offer :

An introduction to circus theatre: how to make meaning from movement adapted either for complete beginners to those with more circus experience

Masterclasses for professionals & emerging professionals in approaches to making circus theatre

Lectures & Practical Sessions for btec, CAT, Undergraduate & Postgraduate courses

Talks, post show discussions & chairing events

Creation of specific content including training videos for online courses
