Environmental Circus

The environmental circus project uses circus as a metaphor to make complex scientific and ecological topics accessible to the senses. Elements from aerial artistry in particular, but also acrobatics and juggling - such as rotations, balances and moments of falling - can be linked to discourses on sustainability (circulatory systems) and the human threat posed by climate change. A circus aesthetic thus makes it possible to lend scientific-ecological topics a sensual-emotional experience.

The multimedia project aims to develop an experimental format in the field of science communication to communicate environmental science topics in a playful and interactive way. The project is a collaboration with the SILBERSALZ Festival and the SILBERSALZ Institut. Anna-Sophie Jürgens (Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science of The Australian National University) collaborates with the Environmental Circus.
