Devising and Performance Masterclasses
Are you ready to make some performance work?
This Autumn we are bringing you this HUGE devising and performance program.
Beginning with a 5 class intensive with none other than Deb Batton, and followed by a 9 week Circus Lab where you will be guided by Artistic Director Celia White you will be guided through a range devising processes towards making new work.
Deb Batton is a very experienced circus director, working with Tumble Circus, NICA, Circus Oz, The Women’s Circus, among others, and she was Artistic Director of Legs on the Wall. Sheis currently touring as a performer with A Good Catch in the award-winning show, Casting Off.
She delivers exceptional workshop experiences for participants at all levels of performance and devising skills.

This work can then be continued in our Circus Lab over 9 weeks that will support emerging and professional performers to respond to the provocations of consumption and waste, based around found objects, rejected white goods, obsolete technology, and more.
The Circus Lab will develop these incentives into a range of new short works for audiences that will be presented in a range of ways to suit the developing works, that could be immersive, installation style presentations, promenade elements, site specific contexts and artist forums.
These workshops are open to women, trans and non-binary people with intermediate to advanced level skills in circus, or an equivalent (such as dance or theatre).
