Circus Sessions (now in it’s 4th year) is a weeklong circus laboratory and think-tank that will offer a small group of contemporary circus artists the opportunity to work with internationally renowned circus artist/ instructor/ researcher, Marie-Andreé Robitaille in the beautiful space of The Harbourfront Centre Theatre.
Marie-Andreé Robitaille is a force in contemporary circus. She comes from an acrobatic and dance background and is now senior lecturer in circus, head of the bachelor of arts in circus at the School of Dance and Circus, DOCH parts of Stockholm University of the Arts UNIARTS (Sweden), and Artistic Director of Cirkus Perspektiv (Sweden). You can read more about her projects at www.cirkusperspektiv.se
This initiative is open to all forms of circus practice, diverse practices, diverse abilities. Circus Sessions is interested in engaging artists with a rigorous curiosity in creative process.
This year Circus Sessions will also be working with Alex Bulmer and Erin Ball to increase accessibility to a diverse range of artists (blind, diverse bodies, etc).
Circus Sessions looks to encourage artists to engage in a creative dialogue that examines their evolving form, cultivates experimentation in performance, as well as networking, advocacy and audience development and engagement strategies.
Circus Sessions is free to all participants. Participants will be responsible for travel costs. We will do our best to help find accommodation.
