Combining Circus with Theatre, Dance and Technology to create beautiful, Innovative storytelling
We find ways of making work that we really believe in, and we strive to make sure that the performances we create are high quality and entertaining by respecting the artforms we use, and the people we work with.
Producing new circus performances is at the heart of what we do, and to make that worthwhile, we work hard to promote Contemporary Circus around the UK, and to take our productions further afield. We have a track record of presenting circus in venues and festivals with very little experience of the artform, and offer technical help and information, and marketing and engagement know-how to help demystify the process and reach new audiences.
