Serious Circus Symposium 2019


The Second Serious Circus Symposium was held on Feb 15th + 16th, 2019 at Jacksons Lane, London.  There was a public performance in the evening on the Fri 15th called ‘Night of Serious Circus.’


2 days to investigate how we can make Circus and Physical performance more responsive to social needs and global crisis.


Stumble invited application for Sway commissions in November.  In the end it was decided not to award any commissions as there was not a strong enough body of engagement work to create a Sway effect.  We created a SWAY WORKING group who experimented and collaborated – asking questions about how to engage people in the streets, in the days running up to the Symposium.

Also connected to the Symposium was a Parkour project initiated by Stumble and facilitated by Esprit Concrete with Kids on The Green around Latimer Road.
