We are delighted to share that the fabulous folk at Women*s Circus are the recipients of the Public Realm Performance Commission for Deaf and disabled artists, jointly offered by Arts Centre Melbourne and Metro Tunnel Creative Program, with a creative development produced by Performing Lines.
Their successful pitch was for work titled MOMENTUM which will occur in and around the Arts Centre Melbourne precinct, reimagining the body and its relationship to space, and in doing so challenging our preconceptions about normativity. In order to deliver the project Women*s Circus will establish a new ensemble of disabled and non-disabled female identifying and non-binary circus artists.
Audiences will be guided in groups safely and accessibly through a course of
performances featuring balancing acts, aerial dancing, magic tricks and fortune telling, and much more.
