Cirkusön (Circus Island) – an association that supports contemporary circus. Cirkusön is a non-profit association with a mission to spread circus in the Gothenburg area. The association has existed since 2011, and has previously arranged two new-circus festivals. At the moment, we do it above all in four ways:
Open circus lessons:
We offer the opportunity for weekly self-training for the association’s members. We have no trainer but everyone focuses on what they want to practice and exchange knowledge with each other. It can be anything from juggling, poi and bonfire (without fire) to air acrobatics, acroyoga and unicycle. Both total beginners and professional artists are welcome.
As part of the open exercises, we will also offer supervised workshops for each other. Those who do not want to participate have plenty of room to train their own things in parallel with the workshop.
Circus and acroyoga camps:
Every year the association Cirkusön arranges the camps Höstglöd and Våreld. These are long weekends where we hold workshops for each other, change knowledge and are inspired.
Possibility to rent a room cheaper in the association’s name for extra circus training, circus-related camps etc.
