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.
Matica's performance was raucous and good natured, alternately exciting their audience and calming them with music. The children were delighted by the vast array of exotic instruments and, without knowing it, got a terrific geography lesson. We would happily welcome Matica back to Hartford Public Library again and we encourage other libraries to have them.
