The Socio-Political Dimension of Circus
The aim of this project has been to de-territorialise the circus act by unplugging it from its master signifiers to see what would happen when the bodies and the materials it is composed of spent some time with each other free from the demands of being impressive, seductive, fast or masterful.

“Hannah Hull undertook a series of conversations with people around Liverpool, exploring notions of protest. From banner making to letter writing, organising a march or simply ’sticking up for yourself’, each person is asked to reframe and expand their idea of protest, bringing the concept into their everyday lives. Through this exchange, a phrase is identified as a kind of personal political (with a little ‘p’) motto. This phrase is gifted back to the participant in the form of a badge.”
