The Circus Project

Producer: Katrina Sarson  Videographers: Greg Bond, Tom Shrider  Editor: Bruce Barrow  Audio: Ted Cutler, William Ward

The Circus Project was started by Jenn Cohen in an effort to combine education for homeless and at-risk youth with the life lessons embedded into the circus arts.

Aerial, trapeze, contortion and many other classes are offered in their studio in Portland’s Pearl District. We’ll meet Jenn and other instructors, and watch the students in their Summer Performance Intensive group as they rehearse, learn new skills, and perform in a show.
