 Artist Development Days for Cluichí sa Choille


Over the year we held two artist development days as part of our research into for Cluichí sa Choille. Circus Artists and Outdoor Educators met to exchange practice and explore how our practices can compliment and learn from each other.


We used bushcraft skills to make circus props, explored knotmaking, invented games with ropes and found opportunities to take our tightwire balancing skills onto fallen logs and ropes between trees. Two great days of shared learning and play.


Artist Development day: Circus meets Forest Schools


Lead Artist: Maria Corcoran

Circus Artists: Joanna Williams, Molly O’Brien, Angelica Santander, Peter Moran, Selene Murphy
