All Ability Circus

We believe physical arts is a dynamic and transformative experience and one that should be accessible for all. Through our circus programs, we aim to provide a safe space that encourages expansion of the mind and body that is not solely for a therapy-focused outcome.

Experience Collider

CircusWA and DADAA co-production

Directed by Sam Fox

 

In October 2019, CircusWA and DADAA premiered a multi-disciplinary collaborative performance called  Experience Collider, at the AWESOME International Arts Festival. Twenty eight young people journeyed together as they moved through the collider.  Each person explored it differently:  some moved suspended in the air, in chairs or on wheeled platforms. Others sang, signed or carried lights and video cameras. They needed to find a way through the Collider as a group, each taking turns but always together.

This unique performance was developed with CircusWA’s Youth Troupes in partnership with DADAA’s teenagers with high support needs. Experience Collider was a groundbreaking inclusive performance using circus, dance, theatre and film. Telethon Kids Institute journeyed with our young teenage troupe exploring the changes in quality of life (QOL) for the participants. The full evaluation report can be downloaded below.
