Join us for this life-changing experience. A seven-week intensive for women, trans* and gender non-conforming folks.
May 19 -July 8th, 2018.
BUST! is a 7-week intensive that uses:
circus disciplines, (aerials, partner acrobatics, stilt walking, object manipulation), physical theater and clowning
storytelling, puppetry and art making, and embodied discussion
as a way to:
explore notions of strength and dignity, build community
examine femininity, deconstruct the gender binary, and
uncover the richness of our full voices

The intensive is open to all those who self-identify as women, trans* or gender- non conforming. All shapes, sizes, ages (16+), and backgrounds are welcome!

Absolutely no circus, athletic or performance experience necessary. Classes take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings and on Saturdays, May 19th – July 8th.
As a culmination of this journey, students create a show to be performed on July 6th and 7th at the Wise Fool studio. No previous circus experience of any kind is required!!

BUST! 2018 fees vary based on an equity-based model. In order to make the program accessible to everyone interested, fees will range from $200 to $1000 dependent on your ability to pay. When you register, you will be asked to pay a $200 deposit and then fill out a questionnaire to help you determine where you best fit on the fee scale. In some instances we may be able to provide work trade or full tuition assistance. Please email studio@wisefoolnm.org if the $200 is a barrier to your enrollment.
