The Actors Gymnasium Presents Case Study its 2019 Professional Training Program Showcase

EVANSTON, Ill: For the past nine months, guided by Co-Founder and Artistic Director Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi, students have trained intensively with some of America's top circus instructors.

From Chicago's Queen of Mischief and Mayhem Molly Brennan, to Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson ONE's Amanda Crockett and the multi-award-winning dance theater, Lucky Plush Productions.

Case Study explores the ways in which athleticism, grace, spectacle, and storytelling combine to form the vibrant world of circus theatre. It recognizes the incredible dedication that went into an intensive year of training and celebrates the beginning of the next phase of these performers' careers.

What makes this program unique? Artistic Director Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi says, It gives our students the tools they need to form their own artistic vocabulary. Developing that vocabulary in a collaborative environment helps artists deepen their skills in profound ways they may never have even dreamed of.

Graduating students include Stefan Brundage, David Chervony, Molly Hernandez, Kai Hirota, Amma May, Jordan Reinwald, Arielle Giselle Rogers [Clitora Leigh ((ยก)) ] , Michele Stine, Sasha Vulovic, and Erin Williams.
