The circus represents our own driving idea, our reason for being
What is a circus if not about looking at things in brave and new ways? What is a circus, if it’s not about emotion, drama, narrative and engagement? The circus contains rare tensions. Imagination with discipline, rehearsal and rigour. Innovation within tried and tested models. Individual virtuosity within a strongly collaborative frame.
The circus is a place that excites and thrills, disquiets and transports. Over time and geographies, it has inspired books, films, dance, art, fashion and political movements. It is alive and vibrant — and is freshly reinvented every day.
