Circus – a safe(r) space for danger is an international conference on technical, physical and psycho-social safety for circus professionals
Throughout their careers, circus practitioners move from one role to another. From informal to formal scenarios, taking up roles as educators, artists or organisers; creating or performing, both on-stage and behind the scenes. While moving between these worlds, safety is key. Because life in the circus is all about questioning boundaries, bending rules and changing perspectives, often while in close interaction with others. How can we provide a safe environment and take care of ourselves and others?
During this international conference on technical, physical and psychosocial safety within the circus industry, Circuscentrum, MAD Festival and Ell Circo D’ell Fuego invite circus professionals to exchange experiences and inspire each other.
