Collaboration & Devising: On the Ground


Collaborative work is the key to most contemporary circus, and in this workshop you will get the chance to use your ground skills in pairs and trios. Explore the possibilities, processes, and pleasures of ensemble creation.


Participants should have basic comfort in floor-based movement such as dance or acrobatics. Participants must also be able to hold a plank for 30 seconds and kick up into a handstand against the wall.
