The National Youth Circus Event brings together youth circus schools from across the UK, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The three day event gives youth circuses the opportunity to visit the National Centre for Circus Arts, take part in a weekend of workshops, masterclasses and meet other young circus performers. The weekend also includes a Practitioner Programme of workshops for group leaders.
Liquid Sky is a new piece of visual theatre exploring the interface between sonic art and aerial circus, within a laser light scenography. Titled as an homage to the cult 80s movie and a famous laser visual effect, the performance takes inspiration from Doris Lessing’s feminist Sci Fi novel ‘The Marriages Between Zones Three, Four, and Five’ about an epic escape for enlightenment.
