With the aim of making Salt a reference municipality in the training and professionalization of the circus, Les Guixeres Circus School project was born. The initiative starts from the collaboration between three entities: El Canal – Center for the Creation of Performing Arts, the Col·lectiu de Professionals de Circ de Girona (CPCG) and the Associació Federació d’Entitats Socioculturals de Salt. The three entities have been collaborating since last October with the desire to work for the promotion of culture and live arts in the Girona counties starting with the circus.
The Canal has welcomed and been part of the creation of this project and has adapted Nau 2 with the aim of turning it into a space specialized in circus and street arts. The Nau 2 is where the circus training workshops for children, young people and adults take place, the school’s complementary activities and the training and rehearsals of the companies and artists planned for the project.
The school presents a specialized training offer in circus and has a series of services aimed at professional development and support for creation in the circus sector.
