This week, I wanted to do some research about how to maximize my time over spring break. I don’t know about you, but I often feel guilty when I don’t think I’m training enough, so I wanted to see what I should really be doing this week.
Happy Circadium auditions! As we dive into the beginnings of a second year of students, what is the school looking for in future artists, and what are they cultivating in current artists? What is it about contemporary circus that captivates?
What are the characteristics of a safe learning environment, specifically in the arts? Whose responsibility is it to create that environment? And how can we as students actively take part and work towards fostering a safer learning environment?
I wish I could tell you I was answering the question of how to break the rules that don't exist, but all you'll find here are more questions. How do you take risks as an artist? How do you break the rules?
It's been a crazy few weeks over here in my circus world, full of galas, assessments, and engagements! The first trimester at Circadium has flown by, but this past month has been filled with just a little more sparkle. Come check it out!
Theatre games have always been fun for me, but until this week, never truly made me uncomfortable. This week, I was able to be pushed outside my comfort zone, challenge my way of learning, and learn a few things about myself in process.
I can’t believe it’s been a full month since I came to Philadelphia to start my circus dream. As this life finally begins to feel normal, I'm beginning to delve into the various circus disciplines I've bene working on! Check out this week's post on wire walking!
