Art form: Theatre
Project name: Cirque Du Selwyn
Project information: This project aims to share circus, creation and performance skills with year 9 and 10 students. We will be working with three experienced circus artists to develop students’ physical and performance skills alongside their curiosity and creativity. The students will learn aerials, object manipulation and partner acrobatics.
In the first phase of this project, the students will learn circus skills and be guided in creating their own moves, transitions and following their curiosity to see what works for them. In phase two they will take the knowledge they have gained and use it to express themselves through devising a performance piece. This will involve refining the skills they have, layering narrative and choreographic elements and incorporating music and costumes.
Project starting: February 2021
