Danger Club

Circa

Safe things are boring. Danger is fun.

Circa’s Danger Club is a new immersive community enrichment project that deconstructs risk. It’s aimed at the 12-18 years age group with a performance outcome that can be held in a large range of venues that might include an arts centre, a disused railway tunnel, a speigeltent, a museum or a school.

Members of Circa’s globally renowned creative and acrobatic teams host a series of workshops exploring what does danger mean to you, how can we celebrate it, participate in it, control it and present it? An immersive experience for audiences of 100-300 people per performance is designed by the participants led by our Danger Leaders.

Risk mitigation, participation and providing a thrillingly good time are our specialties. Circa’s Danger Club is an engagement program of scale and ambition. It is also remarkably affordable as it ends with a ticket buying audience: two to three performances of up to 300 people a show help defray costs and provide unforgettable performance outcomes. It is scalable, flexible and ambitious. At its core are the same values that have made Circa internationally renowned: quality, audacity and humanity.

Information for Presenters

An intensive creation and rehearsal period (between one and four weeks) gets the participants ready to perform with, about and despite danger. They learn skills, share experiences and engage creatively with each other and the theme of danger.

The performance arrives. Audiences enter an immersive world where all senses are activated. Physical skills, the talents of the participants plus our acrobatic Danger Leaders together create an hour of spine-tingling theatre, circus, music and environment.
