Circus for Rebels / support for at-risk youth

Upsala-Circus challenges conventional life scenario of at-risk youth and children with Down syndrome by the means of new circus (cirque nouveau) art. We've produced "Pirosmani Dreams" performance casting the rebels - those kids who are usually abandoned and stigmatized by teachers and caregivers as troubled, intractable or unapt to learn. Acrobatic jumps and circus tricks meet with these alive, active and free youngsters, who perform in the illusion of the stage. There is physical perfection, stunts and show tricks, and there is the world of perfectly Different individuals, their own way of seeing (things), their way to experience the world.
