In focus and out of focus… What’s in the picture and what’s just outside? What is in our minds, what has dropped way out of range? And what does it mean to be focused and conversely unfocused?
This theme has a special resonance to circus where a moments loss of focus can lead to a drop, a fumble or something even worse.
Our Second Year BTEC students explore this theme, integrating physical theatre with a range of circus work from diverse disciplines. These emerging performers look at all aspects of this pertinent topic whilst trying to stay … In Focus!!
Stimulus for this performance comes from the ‘Sawdust and Sequins: The Art of Circus‘ exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) from 24 March – 3 June 2018, in celebration of the Circus 250 festival.
