« […] the circus school is not a school as I was saying, because there is no bench nor seat, no homework to send in, no justifications to bring. It is a place perfumed by blood, sweat and tears but also full of shouts of joy and embraces, of transformation and reflexion. Step by step it becomes the home of those who choose, more or less consciously, a hard and often (at least at the beginning) ungrateful path, that of circus. […]
It is not a school because here, everyone takes their own time to learn, no one learns things at the same pace, […] because circus is the praise of diversity, to begin with of bodies and objects, then beyond to aesthetics and languages, which bring us today to no longer speak about circus anymore, but about Circus Arts. And here we are, a training centre has become a world where diverse cultures meet each other, bodies and minds, along with diverse personalities and ways to conceive circus. […] If I think about circus as it is now, a quote by Jean Michel Guy comes to mind “Circus is the space where reality transforms itself in metaphor”
