New stage for the young circus artists in Russia



This project will help Upsala-Circus to construct a professional theatre stage in the circus tent. Upsala-Circus tent is the only children circus tent in all Russia. In this tent children from groups of social risk can train and perform, dream and work, be happy and fulfill themselves.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are about 60 children participating in different circus projects of Upsala-Circus: children from groups of social risk and children with disabilities. Every day, 5 days a week, they train in the circus tent. Every month they perform for broad public. The current stage was done by volunteers. It doesn't have any shock absorption, cushioning, and the floor is very hard. Training on that kind of surface is bad for joints and spine.

How will this project solve this problem?

We are raising funds to construct a new, professional theatre stage in our children circus tent. It will be designed by theatre professionals, it will be done with solid wood and cushioning. It will allow children to train and perform safely. The children will not have any back and joint pain even after many years of almost professional training and performance. The stage will also be noiseless. Right now every acro trick or jump is accompanied by a loud thump.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will construct a professional stage, equipped with light and sound systems. It is important for Upsala-Circus artists to feel that they are participating in a professional project. This stage will also allow us to invite more professional and big social circus and theatre projects to participate in our annual International Festival.
