Our Vision and Mission


To contribute to a just, resourceful and creative society by harnessing community strengths and inspiring positive change in the lives of individuals through social circus and performance


Vertical Circus uses circus skills and performance as a tool to empower marginalised members of society to realise new realities for themselves, their families and communities.

Vertical Circus does this through partnering with and providing resources to existing local organisations, where we host life changing projects. Projects are divided into distinct elements: training, show creation, show seasons and professional engagements.

Vertical Circus places a strong emphasis on physical discipline, strength and creativity in our programs building on our foundational values of mutual respect, safety, honesty, trust and group work.
