In her doctoral artistic research project "Circus as Practices of Hope," Marie-Andree Robitaille explores circus arts' epistemic, ontological, and ethical specificities through a posthuman lens and new materialist approaches to composition and performance. The project advances a philosophy of circus that highlights circus-specific kinetic, aesthetic and embodied knowledge, situating circus arts as hopeful practices for the future. 

For the occasion, she will perform the circus piece Multiverse, and the project's written thesis and digital exposition will be launched in the public sphere! The event is open to the public free of charge, but reservations are necessary.
