The Circus Department includes all programmes and courses within the circus discipline.
The circus art is in constant evolution, often with extreme displays and expressions. The circus education at DOCH uses the skills and the artistic traditions as a foundation on which to build high level technical and artistic competences in new practices. It offers knowledge about, and an understanding of the many forms of expression in circus. Upon graduating, the student can use her/his artistry to contribute to the development of the circus movement vocabulary and in turn may even perhaps redefine the art form itself. The programme initiates innovative processes in methods of working and of expressing oneself in close relationship to choreography and the performing arts.
