This February we are getting involved with The National Youth Circus Event. The three day event brings together youth circus schools from across the UK, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland giving youth circuses the opportunity to take part in workshops, masterclasses and meet other young circus performers. The weekend also includes a Practitioner Programme of workshops for group leaders.
As part of the practitioner programme for youth leaders Charlotte will be talking to the leaders about "ways to approach creating / devising circus".
And Alex is leading a 4 day intensive workshop with the young people from the national youth circus who are part of the centre for advanced training (CAT) programme. They will be looking at reimagining their existing apparatus and how it is rigged and coming up with and prototyping new pieces of equipment.
