Cirkus Theatre Project at UNCSA
Cirkus Theatre Project | Documentary
Project 2 of 8

A collaboration with UNCSA, inspired by Cirque du Soleil, to develop student-driven performances in which small teams of final-year UNCSA students create and present original work without the use of words. Following graduation, these students become Cirkus Theatre Resident Artists employed by UNCSA to rehearse and stage their performances in late summer.

The Cirkus Theatre projects from the 2013-2014 school year were documented in a video series shown on UNC-TV in January 2015. The half-hour documentary may be viewed above, and six short segments below, on this page.
