The Wandering Circus is a touring troupe of international artists skilled in performing and teaching across circus, cabaret and flow arts. They have over 100 combined years of experience in object manipulation, flow arts, fire performance, burlesque, spoken word, aerials, and acrobatics.
The Wandering Circus was founded in New Zealand through the not-for-profit organisation Community Arts and Circus Trust New Zealand - Cactnz and first toured in the summer of 2018. During this time, they offered workshops and shows to regional communities, with a focus on youth and culture. These workshops were complemented by skill-share gatherings and shows for the circus community and supporters in urban areas.
Destinations ranged from the tiny coastal town of Granity to Tapu te Ranga Marae in Wellington. The tour reached from Dunedin on the South Island to Wellington on the North Island.During her participation in the first tour, Sophie deLightful decided that it was Australia's turn to experience the Wandering Circus, and expand our reach to youth and circus communities in regional areas along the East Coast as well as major cities. Our troupe members come from all backgrounds, and are inspirational proof of working hard against the odds to make dreams come true.
