MA Directing Circus Research Presentations

Friday 15th April



A must-see night of performance for anyone interested to see what kind of study, research and artistic production lies beyond the BA at Circomedia. This night will be a showcase of work from our current students attending the Masters course in Directing Circus, and from our ex-students.

This night blurs the usual boundaries between director, performer, teacher, student, artist, technician, genius, and idiot.

All are welcome. As the course expands there will be more work that tests the definition of ‘circus director’. The course is open to makers. If you are interested to join us in answering the many questions that attend the making of circus art, you can apply now through the Circomedia website.

The seating configuration for our performances is flexible, but as standard, our main seating area is raked. The front rows are level and accessible, and aisle seats are available. Please get in touch to reserve seats in these rows if required.

Please note that seating in our Gallery is accessed via a flight of stairs and is not accessible for audience members who may find stairs difficult or impractical.
