Manifestly Phia (13:49)

Circus Post is a series of short films made by Crying Out Loud and film-maker Deborah May contextualising the development of contemporary circus over the past 40 years.

The transgender artist and juggler  Phia Ménard talks about the meaning of transformation and erosion in her work, about piecing together the puzzle of each performance, about putting herself in danger, and about the power of the circus artist to bring their audience in to a closer relationship with death.
