We can also include Juggling, Hula Hoops, Bottle Walking, Rola Bola, Unicycle, Diabolo, Cigar boxes and Magic.


Safety is our NUMBER ONE priority and the first and last word on any work we do.

Despite the renegade reputation of circus historically and the ‘death-defying’ products we propose, we categorically NEVER place any one of our friends, employees or clients in any REAL or possible danger.

This is not to say that it is all a ‘trick’. The fact remains that circus is a HIGHLY TRAINED set of SKILLS which have been repeated so many times they become SECOND NATURE to the performer. We NEVER perform anything we feel UNSAFE about or feel has any possibility of endangering ourselves or the people around us.

Additionally, if there is an especially sensitive environment or you have any concerns whatsoever, most of our acts can be performed with a safety harness, taking human error out of the equation entirely.


Our Team Building Workshops take place at our premises in Penrose, Auckland, or, if you can’t come to us, we can bring the circus to you!

Workshops range from a couple of hours to a full week and we have three categories: 


GIVE IT A GO – CIRCUS SKILLS: a fun selection of circus activities


BODY WORK: focused on developing body awareness, strength and flexibility


HOW TO – CREATION: a guided show development programme
