Galway Community Circus and Maleta Company are delighted to present,
‘The Circus Guide to Chaos Theory’, which will take place in St Joseph’s Community Centre on the 6th and 7th of May. This show is the epitome of what GCC stands for - bringing the joy of circus arts to the community. The show will be brought to you with thanks to the Arts Council, Galway City Council and Erasmus+.
Order and chaos – can one exist without the other?
The show is a conceptual performance to showcase the dichotomy between order and chaos and explore what exists in between. This abstract idea has been created entirely by the youth ensemble together with their tutors from Maleta Company. This idea was born last October through art and youth work and now it is being brought to life in a dramatic display of circus talent under Galway Community Circus’ very own roof.
Experience the interdisciplinary nature of circus through the different skill sets of theatre, acrobatics, aerial, juggling, clowning and tight wire and share in the vision of our young circus members and their creative mindset.
“’The Circus Guide to Chaos Theory’, is an invitation to the place that we try to hide from ourselves" says Isabela Mello, one of the Galway Community Circus tutors facilitating the production. "Order and chaos – can one exist without the other?"
Galway is known for its rich culture, as residents, visitors, tourists and guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing what cultural avenue to explore. However it is not often one gets to stumble upon a community circus in Ireland, that is so involved with community spirit, arts, youth work and the pure joy of circus.
Save the date and let ’The Circus Guide to Chaos Theory’ take you on a journey; a journey into the realm of order and chaos, an exploration into these elements in a creative display and an embodiment of the concepts themselves, a familiar yet often obscure concept to us all. This is a show for the whole family to enjoy and be inspired by the amazing talent and skill of the youth ensemble of Galway Community Circus.
'In all chaos there is a cosmos,
In all disorder a secret order.' (Carl Jung)
