Circus Behind The Fence

About This Project

Upsala-Circus brings circus also to those who have limited freedom in a closed institution for juvenile delinquents. This program is carried out in collaboration with the Special Closed School (School number 1). 20 young boys aged 12-16 participate in Upsala-Circus circus activities. They are exactly the type of rebels for whom the circus was initially established. Through the circus activities brought to them onto the school grounds the boys can find a different kind of relationship to their surrounding – one based on responsibility, respect and enthusiasm. The objective of Upsala-Circus is that these experiences will later help the boys to make better life choices.
