Circus Performers – we offer a selection of the best Australia’s circus performers and variety acts.
These performers deliver high quality entertainment for corporate events, festivals, shows, private parties and more.
Our team can walk you through the wonderful world of circus and advise you of the best acts for your event. We will marry our artists with your vision to give unforgettable results.
The Australian circus industry continues to flourish, providing us with an array of spectacular contemporary and traditional circus artists bringing stunning performance onto our stages and into our events. Circus is an art form like no other and, as its popularity continues to grow, the art form continues to evolve and adapt, incorporating traditional styles with new, borrowing a hint of burlesque or a touch of the grotesque to create an art form that is ever innovative, inspiring, tantalising and engaging.
Circus performers require a physical and mental dedication and discipline demanded of no other art form. Our artists have spent years hurting, sweating, bleeding and risk taking to achieve the level of skill that they bring to the stage for the audience to enjoy.
Please note the artists may vary based on availability and by location.
