Peril or possibility ? : the performance of risk in aerial circus art and acrobatic theatre

Meyer, Amy ; Montez, Noe
Medford (MA) : Tufts University, 2014

Acrobatic acts have attracted audiences for centuries. Despite a history of injury and death, performers remain driven to push physical boundaries and audiences remain eager to witness risky feats. This thesis introduces the concept of risk as a performative construct, and draws on reception theory to consider the
use of physical risk in performance. It follows the development of aerialism in the circus from nineteenth-century England to twentieth-century America, and examines the ways in which a growing investment with risk management has shaped contemporary circus acts. It interrogates the perception of risk, and the
limits of its appeal. It then explores how acrobatics have been used in the theatre as a mode of dramatic expression. Ultimately, it argues that physical risk-taking in performance holds the potential to deeply connect performers and spectators in a shared sensation of success, evoking a communal sense of possibility in the face of perceived limitation.

MEMOIRES ET THESES

A desire for presence : the ritual aesthetics of contemporary circus

Lievens, Bauke ; Jacques, Jessica ; Minguet, Joan Maria
Barcelone : Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, 2009

In general the aim of this paper is to link the recent tendency towards ritual poverty in theatre and circus to contemporary philosophical thought. Due to the loss of meaning of philosophical concepts that define the human subject as a centred, autonomous and mystical entity, also the basic concepts of the performance arts have changed. In this context we would like to indicate the abandonment of the aesthetics of representation for an exploration of what lies beyond representation: presence. In theatre this evolution is manifested in the shift from dramatic theatre to postdramatic theatre. After a period of interdisciplinarity known as „Nouveau Cirque?, contemporary circus recently manifest the same desire for presence.

Secondly, we would like to argue that with the gaining importance of the Real both theatre and circus seem to approach their ritual origins. This evolution is widely known in postdramatic definitions of theatre as performance, ceremony or social event. In circus however, the matter is more complex due to the ambiguous and physical connection to reality. In many ways circus resembles ritual, which drives us to propose an analytical frame for circus as a contemporary ritual on the level of function, experience and aesthetics. The latter however is not a closed and perfectly fitting scientific tool, but has to be understood as a map that can guide us in the fascinating adventure of analyzing the increasingly popular landscape of contemporary circus.
