Circus Brings New Opportunities

Small World Theatre has launched regular aerial circus skills training. The new classes have been made possible through a larger building project to extend the facilities at Small World Theatre, Cardigan funded by The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Investing in Rural Areas and Arts Council Wales.

It has been the organisation’s ambition to rig the venue for aerial circus for some time. Ann Shrosbree, director said

Small World Theatre is offering circus training opportunities to young people and adults. We hope Cardigan will be as enthusiastic as we are and soon we will be offering circus training within projects and opening it up more people with varying abilities. This is a dream come true.

Syrcas Byd Bychan is part of the building’s development programme and has got off to a brilliant start, growing from strength to strength under the leadership of Small World Theatre and Déa Neile-Hopton from The Ridikulus Experiment. Last term we started classes for young people and adults, and this year we have launched a third class for children not in formal education. Coming up is a series of Syrcas Intensive days which will give Déa a chance to meet and assess those on the waiting list. These days will also offer further training opportunities to students.
