Bodies - Circus Events - CircusTalk

This is a cabaret style circus piece that explores the relationships people have with their body, with emphasis on reducing stigma by showing authentic, relatable, and tangible first person narratives that combine spoken word and circus movement.  This show is a part of the Philly Fringe Festival!



Narratives of people’s relationships with their bodies have been collected and remastered to create a spoken word from which artists created circus movement elements that reflect these narratives conveying authentic storytelling. Narrative will span the myriad of relationships that people can have with their bodies, the equipment, and the audience. Each narrative can showcase a specific time or a specific relationship, understanding that the way we relate to our bodies changes over time and with various situations. 



Thematic elements of access are used to broaden the way individual audience members connect to the work. Access includes the incorporation of an American Sign Language interpreter, exploration of the use of audio descriptions and various visual aids.
