Flying Footless: A Manual for Aerial Coaches of Lower Limb Amputees
The updated Flying Footless manual is a guide for creating accessible and inclusive circus practices. The manual focuses on lower limb amputees with an outline for making circus accessible for all people. There is information about language, warm ups, how to ask questions, how to connect with the Disabled/adaptive community, specific skills for amputees and much more. The manual is designed to accompany our 2-day workshop for coaches, followed by a practical workshop to connect the participants with the community. The workshop addresses access and ideas for all: upper limb amputees, wheelchair users, working with the Deaf community, the blind community, Mad Art, and much more.
