Abstract

Le cirque social réfère aux programmes qui utilisent le cirque dans un contexte d’intervention sociale. Bien qu’ils leur soient destinés, peu de données existent sur l’impact qu’ils ont sur les jeunes. Nous nous penchons sur un événement de cirque social de quatre jours. Quatre thématiques caractérisent l’expérience des participant·es : (a) la création d’un espace social sécuritaire; (b) l’enrichissement de la compréhension de soi; (c) le renforcement des capacités expressives; et (d) l’expérimentation du monde qui nous entoure. Cette recherche démontre comment le cirque social peut créer des milieux sociaux sécuritaires et enrichissants, adaptés aux expériences des jeunes.
