What !F Circus
A Circus Workshop and Performance experience that has been 15 years in the making!
Adam BOOM! is a Circus artist of theatre, stage and street. You name it and he’ll spin, balance or juggle it!
His recent project ‘What !F Circus’ was an idea realised over these years in response to Teachers requests to bring circus skills to Reception, KS1 and KS2 School Children across the UK in a safe, colourful and imaginative format.
Inspired. He asked himself, What if all these years of exploration into Circus creations was leading to finding the truths within Play that could be universal when finding others natural circus skills? What if, Play co-ops a joint learning experience that enhances our self-wealth; physically, socially and mentally with improved understanding of these capabilities and more? What if all this could be fun, safe and progressive? What IF Circus was the answer…?
With these what if questions buzzing around his head Adam set about investing time and creative energies to this discipline; re-imagining his wealth of performance knowledge from a multitude of props, acts and 1000's of hrs performing. Learning how to harvest the sweet nectar that is central to Circus. The Core Skills:
Engaging students with 3 stages of achievement:
3. Practice makes Progress
Groups of children have a structured framework in which to Play and Discover OR Play to Perform.
What !F Circus has facilitated at Primary Schools Activity weeks:
MADs, STEM and Healthy Living Projects, after school clubs and family fun days.
Adam is currently exploring the deep roots that Play has in early life developmental growth stages: physical, mental and social skillsets.
"Understanding the wealth of new knowledge in the field of Play is a fundamental platform to understand how to enhance peoples experiences when discovering their own natural Circus talents!" Adam BOOM!
