Circus and Opera Charlotte Mooney Ockhams razor

2018 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Modern Circus as we know it today, a birthday widely celebrated in UK and Ireland as Circus250. Since 1768, this art form has been constantly shifting, changing and re-imagining, taking its audiences on new adventures and all the while pushing the boundaries of risk and human endeavor. Let’s look at the extraordinary journey of the art form of Circus and most particularly focus on how Circus sometimes flirts with other art forms such as Opera. Ockham's Razor artistic director Charlotte Mooney, was one of the four guest speakers to join us at our recent Circus250 Focus in Wexford Arts Centre to celebrate 250 years of Circus in Ireland and the UK. She talked about 'Circus and Opera' and depicted some of the stunning shows she has been part of. Enjoy the read!
