Run away and join the circus—at Omega! Circus skills are a wonderful tool for expression and can be a powerful metaphor for finding balance in life, strengthening inner reserves, and discovering the beauty and humor in challenges.
Join Bindlestiff Family Cirkus cofounders and workshop leaders, Stephanie Monseu and Keith Nelson, as they guide you through a combination of physical discipline, circus skills development, inventive character acting, and the physicalization of ideas through movement.
You explore creative expression and body awareness through circus skills, clowning, and theater games. You also learn and practice basic disciplines of the big top and the vaudeville stage—including juggling, prop manipulation, stilt walking, tight wire, acro-balance, and clowning techniques—and discover your secret “cirkus self.”
This workshop is designed for people who are fit and active with an intermediate level of strength and flexibility. Some activities are suitable for those with mobility challenges.
