MASTERCLASS CALL FOR ARTISTS: Acquiring aerial skills for new creation

Written by  CIRQUEON 25. 10. 2013 Blog

From September 9th to 14th 2013

The workshop will revolve around Les Halles’ Grande Halle (main hall) and a variety of tools (such as trapeze, elastics, harness, aerial platform, climbing rope, trapeze nets). We offer you an experiment that will allow you to expand your zone of creating comfort. You’ll get the chance to work with assets you may not be familiar with (harness for a juggler, aerial platform for hand to hand artist, etc.), at surprising heights and in impossible positions too, and all of that depending on your desire and needs for you future productions.

-          large flying trapeze net at 6 or 7 meters high

-          1 or 2 mobile platforms will be suspended (which can use by jugglers and acrobats for example)

-          Multi elastic system (with artists evolving in the space as yo-yo’s)

-          And everywhere: aerial silks, trapezes, climbing ropes, etc.

The workshop will help you to improve your self-confidence toward heights and movements fluidity.

You’ll learn how to use climbing rope and security skills to explore safely artistic creation far above the ground.

On the last workshop day (9/14), there will be a public presentation.
