Cirque Nova is searching for young adventurous people from the London area, who would be interested in being taught 4 days a month or more to do aerial work (free of charge) to perform at Liberty's disability Festival in Trafalgar Square for 2008.

There is no longer an Age limit, as we believe that people in their 30ies are more likely to want to get involved in this project and our funding is NO Longer AGE RELATED

We are looking mainly for wheelchair users disabled people. The level of disability that might be able to work with us are people with these SCI paraplegia: C7 - C8: T1 - T4 : T5 - T9 : T10 - L1 : L2 - S5; Other disabilities will also be accepted, but I would like to give priority to at least 4 wheel chair users.

At no point will the work be dangerous as we will be using the best climbing equipment, we are very serious about our health and safety & insurance You just need to be able to deal with heights.

We need enthusiastic young people, from any background that can deal with heights.
This project is aiming to try to include our work for the passing of the Paralympics torch event in Beijing (China) to London,

We must point that: The Olympics project is not guaranteed yet, but if we succeed in performing at Liberties 2008, we are very likely to be accepted.

We will also train 5 people to walk on stilts and juggle for some floor interventions, which means we are looking at all kinds of disabilities. If you know of anyone that could be interested please get in touch.

First you have to learn how to travel back in time. :mfrlol:

Once you've mastered that, anything should be possible.
