Contemporary Circus

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this volume, twenty-four creators come together with three scholars to discuss Contemporary Circus, bridging the divide between practice and theory.
Lavers, Leroux, and Burtt offer critical commentary and conversations across four key themes: Apparatus, Politics, Performers, and New Work. Contemporary Circus thematically groups and contextualises extracts of conversations to provide a sophisticated and wide-ranging study supported by critical theory. Contemporary Circus uses the lens of ‘contestation,’ or ‘calling things into question’ to provide a portal into ways of seeing today’s circus performance.
