Contemporary circus centre CIRKO SAPIENS
The main activity of the centre is the continuous contemporary circus education for people from age 5 and up, as well as for adults. Circus Sapiens teachers are young and professional contemporary circus artists who have just graduated: Kęstas Matusevičius, Lyla Goldman (USA), Aino Mäkipää (Finland) and Džiugas Kunsman, who is already well known to the Kaunas public. Children from 5 to 18 years of age are invited to participate in the general circus curriculum, and adults, whether they have any experience or not, are invited to study individual disciplines in the evenings: aerial acrobatics (silk, trapeze, rope), group/pair acrobatics, acro-dance, juggling and Chinese pole techniques.
