Matica provides fun and challenging workshops in the circus arts. Workshops begin with games intended to focus young performers and loosen up their creativity. Participants will explore ball and club juggling, unicycling, ball walking, stilt-walking, tumbling and ensemble circus training. Matica also works with students on performance skills, confidence, body awareness and the creation of new acts. Residencies culminate in a live performance for a family or peer audience.
If there's a natural rhythm in everything, Heidi Kirchofer and Joel Melendez just may have tapped into it. Whether it's the pulsating beat of the D'jembe, the spectacular manipulation of fire, the delicate balance of a unicycle or the fluidity of capoeira, Kirchofer and Melendez convey uncanny timing and gracefulness in their performances.
