Embodied Research-Creation Into Contemporary Circus
You’re invited to snapshot presentations of circus research by National Circus School students (directed by Claudel Doucet, Jesse Dryden and Michael Watts), followed by a panel discussion led by Dr. Louis Patrick Leroux on the purpose and possibilities of research-creation in contemporary circus.
A partnership between Concordia University and the National Circus School, this presentation is the culmination of a three-year research-creation project, “Poetics of contemporary circus: a dramaturgy of writing in (and of) the movement.”
Please note: This presentation will move to other locations within the two hour time frame. Please arrive at the EV Atrium promptly at 10:00 a.m.
This research is funded by the Fonds de recherche—Société et culture (Québec). The performative exhibition is presented thanks to the support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (Canada), Concordia University, the Music department of Concordia, Milieux Institute for Research-Creation and the Centre de recherche, d’innovation et de transfert en arts du cirque of the National Circus School of Montreal. The presentation and panel are held in conjunction with the Marché international de cirque contemporain.
