En Piste takes part in St. John's International CircusFest 2020
En Piste ensures a solid and supportive presence at this third edition of the St. John's International CircusFest by offering four free events: a virtual 5@Cirque, a talk with Sylvie Fréchette, a leading figure in sports, and two online workshops.
The festival will kick off with our virtual 5@Cirque on Friday, September 25, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). Based on the original concept of the International Market of Contemporary Circus (MICC), it will be hosted by Krin Haglund with interactive sessions and activities led by selected circus artists. Register at least 24 hours in advance to receive the Zoom link and join the party!
The festival and En Piste are also partnering with the Centre québécois de ressources et transition pour danseurs (CQRTD) to give you the chance to meet Sylvie Fréchette, two-time Olympic medallist in artistic swimming, on Saturday, September 26, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (Eastern time). She will share her inspiring story and tips and tricks for high-performance artists with a certain philosophical inclination. Don't miss this incredible opportunity! Book your place today!
In addition to our training program for the fall session, launched on August 6, we are introducing two free online workshops offered in English. A workshop on hand balancing will be led by Olaf Triebel, while a workshop on creating your own props will be led by Dr. Joseph Culpepper. You can sign up for these workshops directly on our website from August 24.
