Upsala-Circus is a unique and probably the most successful social project in Russia nowadays that works with at risk children and youth. It is not a traditional circus. Upsala- Circus performances organically combine acrobatics, juggling, contemporary and pantomime, parkour and break-dance.
More than 80 young adults between 7 and 18 years take part in the circus acivities on a regular basis. The goal of work is to positively influence the life scenario and social status of at risk children and young adults by means of modern circus, arts and creativity. They acquire experience and life skills that can open up a better future for them – as an option – to be circus artists.
