Om Claras levede erfaringer som nycirkus artistelev
The article concerns the lived experiences of Clara practicing to become a contemporary circus artist. Clara’s narratives reflect contemporary circus as a movement pedagogical practice in relation to aesthetic learning and in relation to the aims of the circus performer education itself. Furthermore her narratives provide a perspective on educational settings on the fringe of ordinary youth education. Firstly contemporary circus is presented as a counterculture to the traditional circus and secondly it describes how the development of contemporary circus as an art form influenced the establishment of contemporary circus schools. Clara´s narratives are the empirical touchstones while body phenomenology and narrativity are the main inspirations theoretically and methodologically.
