Almost Live: Flying Footless

Hosted by VocalEye

Making circus arts more accessible is a passion for Erin Ball, a white femme double below-knee amputee, circus artist, aerial performer, trainer and coach who runs Kingston Circus Arts. In 2017, Erin developed a course and manual for movement-based coaches (specifically circus but it applies to movement in general) called Flying Footless. The course centres around dismantling ableism, Disability theory, access and methods of teaching and suggestions to work towards welcoming the Disability community into movement-based classes. Erin is currently exploring Creative Access and integrating audio description in her work.

Join us to find out more about this amazing artist and how to make circus arts more accessible for everyone.

The VocalEye virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm Pacific Time for some socializing and community updates with host Amy Amantea. The pre-show introduction will begin at 6:45 pm with Amy and guests. The featured show begins at 7 pm followed by conversation, Q and A and a prize draw. 

If you’ve never attended a VocalEye Almost Live Zoom event before, you can register for just one event or sign up for the full season. A Zoom link and reminder will be sent to you on the day of the event.

Accessibility

Almost Live events are designed for people with sight loss, but everyone is welcome.
