Upcoming Online Masterclass

Musicality and its place in Movement Practice with Winter Cyan


Sunday 20th September, 1pm-3:30pm, delivered online.


Women’s Circus is thrilled to host Winter Cyan a circus artist,  musician, composer and multi instrumentalist for another online masterclass in our ongoing series exploring the digital form.


ABOUT THE MASTERCLASS: Sound and music are an important aspect of performance and art. They can carry intention, mood, tell stories, and create ambience. Sound can strengthen the stories we are telling through our movement and reinforce the ideas we are communicating.


In this class we will explore how to better work with music in your movement practice; ways to break down songs and sound, and to design movement pieces around them, or to find and create music that better fits your movement. The class will explore using these techniques practically and apply music theory to open up your movement practice, and add to your devising toolkit.


Suitable for both experienced and emerging artists.



  • A functioning communication device with a microphone and camera – phone, computer or ipad
  • To be familiar/comfortable using online video platforms such as Zoom
  • A quiet/ish location for focus
  • A space in front of your device where you can explore full body movement with ease


PLEASE NOTE: participation requires showing your face, and speaking on camera. Please prepare for whatever makes you feel comfortable and ready to share yourself online.
