Academy of Circus and Performance Art
Programme in brief
Fascinated by contemporary circus and performance art? Study at Fontys Academy of Circus and Performance Art (ACaPA) in Tilburg (the Netherlands)! The four-year bachelor Circus and Performance Art educates young people with sufficient talent and motivation for the profession of circus performer. A contemporary circus performer will be working in the field of circus, a large professional field that has evolved considerably, and that nowadays embraces various structures: circus, variety shows, street performances, site-specific work, circus theatre, visual theatre, amusement parks, events, and more.
Academy for Circus and Performance Art (ACaPA) Fontys Academy for Circus and Performance Art (ACaPA) of Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts offers a four-year full-time study program with a pioneering, distinctive artistic shape. The international orientated study leads to an internationally recognized academic bachelor diploma of professional education as Circus performer and has a highly qualified team and a clear misson. We also offer exceptional training facilities.
Since more than two decades, circus revitalizes as an authentic art, which takes inspiration from other Performing and Fine Arts. At the same time, circus enriches these art forms and stimulates ground-breaking contemporary creation in performing arts. The term ‘contemporary circus’ includes not only the so-called ‘New Circus’ (which is often assimilated to circus theatre), but all present-day types of circus art. A professional circus performer is a highly-skilled artist, mastering one or two circus techniques at an exceptional level. In addition, he has extensive skills and knowledge in other art forms (dance, theatre, performance art, scenography, music) and is able to experiment, to mix up and to merge these art forms, and to give meaning to his performances. He masters techniques of creation and gives individual shape to his performances. He works either as a solo performer or as a member of a group. He is able to work both as interpreter and as author/creator. As an entrepreneur, he is able to manage his professional career, to promote himself and to position himself as an artist within society.
