Create Circus

Flying, falling, catching, grace, risk, sweat, beauty, balance.

Vulcana creates compelling circus performance with a great range of artists, from those new to circus, to emerging and highly experienced performers, plus other collaborating communities. The performance work that emerges is experimental and collaborative in a solo or ensemble context with each project drawing on the skills and ideas of the participating artists. Performances are supported by experienced directors, designers, arts-workers, trainers and technicians, according to the needs of the project.

Vulcana creates pathways from learning to creating circus with Showcases, residencies, incubators and other performance opportunities. You can find out more about these opportunities online here as the projects arise and also on our Vulcana’s Facebook and Instagram
