Contemporary circus

Lavers, Katie ; Leroux, Louis Patrick ; Burtt, Jon
New York : Routledge, 2019

In this volume, twenty-four creators come together with three scholars to discuss Contemporary Circus, bridging the divide between practice and theory.

Lavers, Leroux, and Burtt offer conversations across four key themes: Apparatus, Politics, Performers, and New Work. Extensively illustrated with fifty photos of Contemporary Circus productions, and extensively annotated, Contemporary Circus thematically groups and contextualises extracts of conversations to provide a sophisticated and wide-ranging study supported by critical theory.

Of interest to both practitioners and scholars, Contemporary Circus uses the lens of ‘contestation,’ or calling things into question, to provide a portal into ways of seeing today’s circus performance.

Conversations with: Lachlan Binns and Jascha Boyce (Gravity and Other Myths), Tilde Björfors (Cirkus Cirkör), Kim ‘Busty Beatz’ Bowers (Hot Brown Honey), Shana Carroll (The 7 Fingers), David Clarkson (Stalker), Philippe Decouflé (Compagnie DCA), Fez Faanana (Briefs), Mike Finch (Circus Oz), Daniele Finzi Pasca (Compagnia Finzi Pasca), Sean Gandini (Gandini Juggling), Firenza Guidi (ElanFrantoio, NoFit State Circus), Jo Lancaster and Simon Yates (Acrobat), Johann Le Guillerm (Cirque Ici), Yaron Lifschitz (Circa), Chelsea McGuffin (Company 2), Phia Ménard (Compagnie Non Nova), Jennifer Miller (Circus Amok), Adrien Mondot (Compagnie Adrien M and Claire B), Charlotte Mooney and Tina Koch (Ockham’s Razor), Philippe Petit (high wire artist), and Elizabeth Streb (STREB EXTREME ACTION).

The Routledge circus studies reader

Tait, Peta ; Lavers, Katie
New York : Routledge , 2016

The Routledge Circus Studies Reader offers an absorbing critical introduction to this diverse and emerging field. It brings together the work of over 30 scholars in this discipline, including Janet Davis, Helen Stoddart and Peta Tait, to highlight and address the field’s key historical, critical and theoretical issues. It is organised into three accessible sections, Perspectives, Precedents and Presents, which approach historical aspects, current issues, and the future of circus performance.

The chapters, grouped together into 13 theme-based sub-sections, provide a clear entry point into the field and emphasise the diversity of approaches available to students and scholars of circus studies. Classic accounts of performance, including pieces by Philippe Petit and Friedrich Nietzsche, are included alongside more recent scholarship in the field.

Edited by two scholars whose work is strongly connected to the dynamic world of performance, The Routledge Circus Studies Reader is an essential teaching and study resource for the emerging discipline of circus studies. It also provides a stimulating introduction to the field for lovers of circus. [editor summary]

Briefs and hot brown honey: alternative bodies in contemporary circus

Lavers, Katie ; Burtt, Jon
M/C Journal vol. 20 n°1, 4 p., March 2017


Briefs and Hot Brown Honey are two Brisbane based companies producing genre-bending work combining different mixes of circus, burlesque, hiphop, dance, boylesque, performance art, rap and drag. The two companies produce provocative performance that is entertaining and draws critical acclaim.

However, what is particularly distinctive about these two companies is that they are both founded and directed by performers from Samoan cultural backgrounds who have leap-frogged over the normative whiteness of much contemporary Australian performance. Both companies have a radical political agenda. This essay argues that through the presentation of diverse alternative bodies, not only through the performing bodies presented on stage but also in the corporate bodies of the companies they have set up, they profoundly challenge the structure of the Australian performance industry and contribute a radical re-envisaging of the potential of circus to act as a vital political force.

BLAKflip and beyond : Aboriginal performers and contemporary circus in Australia

Lavers, Katie ; Burtt, Jon
New Theatre Quarterly vol.33 n°4, p.307-319, 2017

In this article Katie Lavers and Jon Burtt investigate BLAKflip and Beyond, a programme of workshops set up by the Australian circus company Circus Oz to mentor and support young Aboriginal performers by providing training and pathways into professional circus. Their analysis is contextualized through an examination of the thirty-year history of Circus Oz, most significantly its roots in the progressive and radical politics of the 1970s. The history of notable and successful Aboriginal performers in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Australian circus is also examined, questioning why, given the relative success of Aboriginal circus performers in the recent past, there are almost none working today. Whiteness as a pervasive characteristic of contemporary Australian performance is offered as a possible cause of this absence, while hopes for the future of Aboriginal circus are discussed with Davey Thompson, the new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Programme Manager at Circus Oz. Katie Lavers is an adjunct faculty member at Edith Cowan University, author of numerous journal articles, and co-editor (with Peta Tait) of The Routledge Circus Studies Reader (2016). Jon Burtt is a lecturer in Dance and Performance Studies at Macquarie University. He is the author of numerous articles on circus pedagogy, and is an advanced-level circus trainer. Lavers and Burtt are currently co-authoring (with Louis Patrick Leroux) a book on contemporary circus (forthcoming 2019). [editor summary]

Re-imagining the development of circus artists for the twenty-first century

Burtt, Jon ; Lavers, Katie
Theatre, Dance and Performance Training vol.8 n°2, p.143-155, 2017

Circus performances now take numerous, diverse forms and these demand a new kind of circus performer, one who is adaptable, self-motivated and creatively innovative. The article argues that much current circus training is out of sync with the new requirements of this evolving industry. It re-imagines the development of elite circus artists, proposing an approach to training performers so that they are not only able to perform their ‘acts’ at the highest technical and artistic level, but are also able to function well as self-motivated, self-regulated, multi-disciplinary artists who are creatively innovative. The article outlines ‘Integrated Training’, an innovative approach to training physical skills developed by Jon Burtt, in which a focus is proposed which includes, alongside the development of high-level physical skills, attention to the development and training of cognitive skills such as self-efficacy and self-regulation, and the constructing of learning and teaching environments that effectively enhance creativity. The article proposes that Integrated Training has the potential to provide an effective basis for the development of the new kinds of artists currently required for the circus arts industry.

Horses in Modern, New, and Contemporary Circus

Lavers, Katie
Animal Studies Journal vol.4 n°2, p.140-172, 2015


Circus is an art form that developed around horses and trick riding. Philip Astley, an excavalry man who had recently returned to London after fighting in Europe in the Seven Years War (1756- 63), founded Modern Circus when he introduced clowns, musicians and acrobats to cover the changeover in his riding displays. Daring, acrobatic stunt riding remained the central most important element in modern circus. The strong sense of connection developed between a cavalryman and his horse through the sense of shared mortality on the battlefield was an important element informing the presentation of horses in modern circus. Running counter to the widespread exploitation of horses as beasts of burden widely used as machines, modern circus often depicted horses as creatures of passion, linked to Romantic imagery of the sublime. Astley championed a more humane way of training horses, and, in the context of its time, Astley’s circus can be seen as acting as a social force to contest pervasive cultural attitudes towards horses as machines. New Circus, which began in the late 1970s, saw a move away from the use of animal performers to the use of human performers only. This can be seen as a response to growing concern about the role of animal performers within circus, and also growing awareness of the rights of animals. The emergence of three new horse circuses in Quebec, Canada, namely Luna Caballera, Cavalia, and Saka, all formed after 1999, is examined in light of this cultural context and the work of Cavalia is discussed.

The political body in new circus and contemporary circus arts : embodied protest, materiality, and active spectatorship

Lavers, Katie
Platform vol. 8 n° 2, p.55-68, 2014


Contemporary circus artists Philippe Petit and Philippe Ménard have created compelling works that have combined circus with performance art; in particular, Petit’s Twin Towers High Wire Walk (1974), and Ménard’s P.P.P. or Position Parallèle au Plancher (2005). These works now stand as limit-text works in their relative fields, which is to say they are works that go beyond the previously accepted limits and now point to new boundaries, or new questions, as to the reaches of the field. This paper asks whether notions underlying performance art can provide a tool to aid in deciphering meanings in these powerful limit-text circus works. It investigates the origins of one of the understandings of the body of the performer that is fundamental to much of performance art — that is the idea of the political body and embodied protest. The notion of materiality is also discussed in relation to the use of ice in Menard’s P.P.P. Active, engaged spectatorship is another important aspect of performance art in decoding the body-in-space and its political and poetic import. Although readings by active spectators may sometimes exceed the performer’s expressed intentions, these diverse readings form an important component of the work’s ability to resonate on multiple levels. The works by Petit and Ménard are explored in relation to these ideas of the political body and embodied protest, materiality, and active, engaged spectatorship. [editor summary]
