Overview

Since more than two decades, circus revitalizes as an authentic art, which takes inspiration from other Performing and Fine Arts. At the same time, circus enriches these art forms and stimulates ground-breaking contemporary creation in performing arts. 

The term ‘contemporary circus’ includes not only the so-called ‘New Circus’ (which is often assimilated to circus theatre), but all present-day types of circus art.

 A professional circus performer is a highly-skilled artist, mastering one or two circus techniques at an exceptional level. In addition, he has extensive skills and knowledge in other art forms (dance, theatre, performance art, scenography, music) and is able to experiment, to mix up and to merge these art forms, and to give meaning to his performances. 

Mission

The education at the Circus and Performance Art programme at Fontys University of Applied Sciences  enables its students to start a professional career in various fields of contemporary circus and in other performing arts. It provides them with the aptitudes to meet the requirements of an incessantly evolving art form on a professional level.

The academy wants to participate in the development and enrichment of contemporary circus, as an important element of culture and society. Such development takes place in the tension between tradition and innovation of circus art.

The international, highly competent educational team participates in setting ground-breaking and innovative marks in circus and performance art education.
