Join us for this life-changing experience. A seven-week intensive for women, trans* and gender non-conforming folks.
May 19 -July 8th, 2018. An annual program since 2002.
BUST! is a 7-week intensive that uses:
- circus disciplines, (aerials, partner acrobatics, stilt walking, object manipulation)
- physical theater and clowning
- storytelling, puppetry and art making
- embodied discussion
as a way to:
- explore notions of strength and dignity
- build community
- examine femininity
- deconstruct the gender binary, and
- uncover the richness of our full voices
The intensive is open to all those who self-identify as women, trans* or gender- non conforming. All shapes, sizes, ages (16+), and backgrounds are welcome! Absolutely no circus, athletic or performance experience necessary. Classes take place in the evenings and on Saturdays, May 19th – July 8th.
As a culmination of this journey, students create a show to be performed on July 6th and 7th at the Wise Fool studio. No previous circus experience of any kind is required!!
In order to make the program accessible to as many people as possible, this year the course will be offered on a sliding scale $200 – $900. When you register, you will be asked to pay a $200 deposit and then fill out a questionnaire to determine where you best fit on the sliding scale. In some instances we may be able to provide work trade or full tuition assistance. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if the $200 is a barrier to your enrollment.
