Aging Circus Bodies is part of a new series called Circus Bodies. The introductory article speaks to the importance of performing circus bodies as meaning makers and culture creators. In this conversation — co-moderated by associate editor Madeline Hoak and Jennifer Miller, Artistic Director of Circus Amok (NYC, USA) — we talk about virtuosity, lifelong care for bodies and the multiplicity of roles performed by older artists as performers, creators and producers. The panelists offer a mix of personal stories from their experiences in Australia, the UK, Hungary, and the US circus scenes, as well as connections to resources and other artists.
