10 am to 6pm

Jacksons Lane, London

performance ‘Night of Serious Circus’ Friday 7.30pm

2 days to investigate how we can make Circus and Physical performance more responsive to social needs and global crisis. 
A wide range of practitioners, educators and managers will share experiences, inspiration and information on
  • radical practice
  • engagement as a priority
  • sustainable practice
  • collaborations with activists and campaigners 
  • social, youth and community circus projects
  • creative devising with serious subjects

Friday February 15th, 8pm  –  public show  Night of Serious Circus showcasing radical performance from circus and physical performance practitioners.   Tickets available from Jacksons Lane or as part of the Symposium full package at Tickets Ignite (tickets launching Nov 18th).

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 have created a SWAY WORKING group who will be experimenting, collaborating and asking questions in the days running up to the Symposium.

Also connected to the Symposium is a Parcour project initiated by Stumble with Kids on The Green starting February 2019 around Latimer Road.
