Ongoing studies at the School

Evaluation of physiological loads on artists during training and performance
Under the supervision of François Prince, from the Kinesiology department at the University of Montreal, 10 students were selected to wear the Hexoskin vest during their training. This will allow the research team to obtain data on physiological workloads.

Evaluation of dynamic loads on circus equipment and rigging
Marion Cossin, form École Polytechnique, measures the loads on circus apparatus. This project seeks to evaluate the physiological load on artists during training and performance.

The School has welcomed, on March 3rd, the Découverte team, Radio Canada's well known science magazine, which is interested in these 2 studies currently underway. We will keep you informed of the release of the report, to which several students and members of the School staff have participated!
