The world’s only MA in Directing Circus

Our MA in Directing Circus is the first of its kind in the world. The MA has been developed to address a recognised need across the global circus community to create and support a new kind of performance director - one who is aware of the possibilities and limitations of using circus techniques in an artistic context.

As an MA student, you’ll engage in both group and independent learning. You’ll have the chance to work with world-leading professionals in the industry, and debate the most recent developments in circus and physical theatre performance and direction.

The MA is accredited by Bath Spa University.

“This brand new MA in Directing Circus is a really exciting development not just for Circomedia but for circus everywhere.”
