Who says there are only a few ways we can play in the "park"?
Who says that the circus is only for certain people to play in?
Let’s reimagine something new together!
Through a variety of circus acts and childhood games, Circus Park subverts existing stereotypes regarding the use of everyday objects. The familiar space of a playground is used as the starting point of the story, connecting memories and inviting audiences to freely imagine and share an adventure in this “circus park” filled with creativity.
Created by Taiwan’s Circus Gate, this interactive experience asks the question, what should a park with recreational and social functions look like in light of the rapid development of cities today? Can everyday objects trigger our imagination and create joy, and how do we break out of the intangible frameworks that restrict us?
The performance of Circus Park contains audience interactions. Audiences will be invited into the performance area at suitable segments and should follow instructions from the performers.
Established in 2015, Circus Gate aims to restore Taiwan's acrobatic excellence of the 1970s and 1980s. It invites public participation and connections with people from all walks of life.
In recent years, through the use of circus elements, Circus Gate has created experimental works that involve social participation, as it seeks different paths for the contemporary circus. It is hoped that the circus is not only seen as a form of entertainment, but also something of cultural and spiritual meaning.
