The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region has 2 identified circus schools:
• the ENCC (National Circus School of Châtellerault) which offers a High school degree with a Circus option,
• ECB (Circus School of Bordeaux) with a preparatory training over 2 years.
Complementary in the circus arts training course, the two schools jointly designed a project bringing together young people attending a circus training in Bordeaux and Châtellerault.
Thus 5 ENCC pupils and 4 ECB students were followed and accompanied by Iesu Escalante, a trainer from the ENCC, on a joint creation.
The fruit of this collaboration was presented on the 1 and 3 December at the 3T, a subsidised theatre, as part of the festival Les Insouciants in Châtellerault.
The creation will be performed again on Saturday 20 January at 19:30 under the ECB’s big top during an "Apéro'cirque".
