About Creation Aerial

At Creation Aerial, we cultivate skilled, multidisciplinary approaches to aerial training and movement research, with an emphasis on building solid foundations through excellent technique and physical fluency. Most importantly though, Creation Aerial promotes new ways of seeing and doing. This approach is grounded in unconventional approaches to physicality and extends beyond that, towards a philosophy of living that values innovation, dialogue and discussion, exploration, hard work, focus and creativity. 

We combine our technical training approach with a creative and experimental philosophy which aims to expand the intellectual and artistic boundaries of contemporary circus and aerial in Ireland, contributing to a brave breed of Irish physical artists with new ideas and artistic ambition. 

Already in our short history, Creation Aerial has become a place where international practitioners excelling in their craft and expertise want to teach, make work and share information.  Since our inception, we have had visitors from Mexico, Australia, United States, UK and Europe offering public training opportunities in a range of skills and disciplines to Irish aerial students. 

We are a network of skilled, loving, artful and hardworking people, excited to welcome new comers into our wonderful world. Want to be involved? Email us and say hello! 

We are currently seeking patronage and support to facilitate us to secure a property for full-time residency. If you are interested in hearing more about our project, please contact us at: creationaerial@gmail.com
