New Toolkit to Unlock Accessible Circus

Extraordinary Bodies are proud to launch Circus for Everybody – A Trainer’s Toolkit. This new guide, created in partnership with Diverse CityCircomediaCirque BijouGraeae and the National Centre, aims to widen access to circus training and to break down the barriers to circus for D/deaf and disabled people.

This toolkit is a key resource for sharing best practice from across the sector, supporting trainers and artists to work with all ages and abilities in a variety of contexts. Using the toolkit will help both individuals and organisations to feel confident when delivering circus to a range of bodies in teaching, rehearsal or performance environments.

Making circus possible for a range of bodies pushes the artform forward – a greater variety of perspectives helps us to see new things and create incredible work. We very much hope that this toolkit will help to build a new generation of diverse performers, producing bold circus that all audiences can enjoy.
