Forget the past and embrace the future – this is circus, but not as you know it. A mini-fest curated by Albany Associate Artist Vicki Amedume.

beyond-circus-albanyIf your idea of circus is clowns in big shoes; think again. This is your chance to experience something different.

The Beyond Circus mini-fest explores the brilliance and diversity of contemporary circus: be it funny, dark, or moving, it never fails to surprise.

Across the festival we have performances for the very young, the young at heart and everyone in between. Whether you’re a circus aficionado or looking to try something new, Beyond Circus samples it all.

For circus artists it’s an opportunity to come together, celebrate where we are and look ‘beyond circus’ to the future of the artform.

Curated by Albany Associate Artist Vicki Amedume, artistic director of Upswing.
