DOCH Essays

The Dans och Cirkushögskolan (DOCH) was the name for the Stockholm university of dance and circus until 2019 (now called SKH). In Autumn 2015 they ran for the first time an online module exploring contemporary circus with international students from a variety of professional circus backgrounds.
