The Motopedagogical Playground is an environment with specifically designed equipment that challenge children to move and experiment safely in various non-binding ways.
The laboratory is a place where children develop through movement. Carefully designed environments stimulate their curiosity bringing about motions in a playful manner. This gives them possibilitie to fortify or broaden skills like balance and coordination, and reinforces confidence.
The building yard is where children create their own movement environment autonomously. Simple construction elements such as logs, boards, posts, car tires, tubes and so on are provided for them to give possibilities for climbing, swinging, rotating, throwing, riding, balancing etc. Children then play in their yard.
In the landscape, equipment and materials demanding all sorts of movements and challenges are constructed and arranged in a different constellation every time. The children themselves decide in which ways they want use them calling on their observation and creativity.
Circus KAOS is where children and young people meet in order to experiment and make circus the way they want. Those attending will wander in a gymnasium full of circus materials and will be free to try and learn anything that makes them curious. At the end of the circus year, they will have a possibility to bring their art and skills with the group and put together a small show.
It’s a day camp in summer like no other. Since 2012 Circus KAOS puts together a week-long of circus fun. We play, we learn, and we do circus inside and outside. Check out some pictures to see what it’s like. We’ll have a downloadable pdf with more info right here when we start taking registration in the spring.
A few times a year we offer special workshops for young people. We also work with the Zirkusakademie Wien which provides all sorts of circus-related workshops for adults.
The open circus training of Circus KAOS offers a space in order to train (circus) skills individually or with a group without guided training. There are a lot of circus materials on site that can be used (unicycles, aerial silks, walking globes, trampoline, aerial ring, trapeze etc.). In collaboration with the Zirkusakademie Wien.
Circus KAOS is a non-profit project involving a large group of people but financially carried on the shoulders of a very few individuals. We’ve been doing great things in Vienna, Austria and abroad since 1991 partly thanks to the support of a few sponsors. We welcome sponsorship offers from companies and individuals, and we have many good ideas on how you could do this and what we could do for you.
