The “Move to Circus Academy” was born from the “Stefanie's not Here Project”, created by Ines LORCA and Shahar KAMAY. The project was established to take along with youth and adults undergoing painful period in their lives (loss of a parent, sexual assaults, divorce, hyperactivity, dyslexia, substance abuse, communication difficulties) and to help them through circus arts, dance, music and theater. Their project focuses on 3 levels: Education, Social and Artistic activities.
