  • CIRCUS+ Research Project | Irish World Academy of Music and Dance
    allows for personal expression and creative development while also providing physical education and fitness training Social circus is a similar pursuit but one that is less conducive to a simple definition Social circus can be thought of as an umbrella term for the use of circus arts in any caring supportive or therapeutic setting For example older people people with disabilities or asylum seekers have all taken part in a number of social circus projects around Europe The results of these projects have shown that circus arts provide a space for self expression and development that is not reliant on prior experience language or athletic ability The focus on fun expression and performance makes circus arts exciting and challenging and the fact that circus arts classes can be altered to fit the participant rather than requiring the participant to change to fit the class makes a space for personal development within the structure of a team The Circus project researchers will for the first time map and detail the training and education that is available in youth and social circus Circus is made up of partners from École de Cirque de Bruxelles and University Léonard de Vinci from Belgium Sorin Sirkus and University of Tampere from Finland Cirkus Cirkör from Sweden Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde from France Belfast Community Circus from Northern Ireland and Galway Community Circus and University of Limerick from the Republic of Ireland It is funded through the Erasmus funding stream from the European Union This consortium of partners are unified by the belief that there is a lack of educational opportunities available to a person interested in youth and social circus The goal of the project is to research the area thoroughly to determine what precisely is on offer then should the hypothesis be supported by the research determine what skills and competencies are needed by those interested in this field and finally develop the curriculum for a module diploma or degree that could be offered to students and professionals interested in youth and social circus By drawing together partners from circus schools and universities Circus will be able to populate a database of every youth and social circus training programme on offer in each partner country Circus will then examine what ancillary educational opportunities are available or would be of use to a youth and social circus student or practitioner from non circus based educational programmes for example physical education courses youth work courses or social work courses In gathering this data Circus will be able to clearly show what is on offer what is not on offer and bridge the gap with a suitably designed educational option The Circus research project is operating at the cutting edge of circus studies a discipline that is still in its infancy but which is growing in size and scope each year As an example of a practice based arts youth and social research project Circus is indicative of the growth between arts practitioners and arts
