BUST! is a 6-week intensive that uses circus disciplines, physical theater exercises, storytelling, and embodied discussion as a way to explore notions of strength and dignity, build community, examine femininity, deconstruct the gender binary and uncover deeper layers of thought and embodiment that inform performance.

As a culmination of this exploration, students create a show to be performed on June 30th and July 1st at the Wise Fool studio.

The intensive is open to all those who self-identify as women, trans* or gender- non conforming. All shapes, sizes, ages (16+), and backgrounds are welcome! Absolutely no circus, athletic or performance experience necessary. Classes take place in the evenings and on weekends, May 20th - July 3rd. Tuition assistance is available.

Tentative Class Schedule:
Sundays 12:30 - 4:30pm Workshops & Performance Skills
Mondays 5:30 - 9pm Stilts & Aerials
