The Circus Village was back, but not as you’d seen it before. NoFit State Circus teamed up with circus organisations and freelancers from across the UK to put together a programme to support and inspire the circus sector after one of its most difficult years. As the world was recovering from the Corona Virus we took our first steps by organising The Circus Village at home in Wales….
The Circus Village - it takes a village to raise a circus
In the summer of 2021 a group of Welsh Circus companies and practitioners partnered up to create a ‘village’ as you’d never seen before. Borrowing from the Big Top touring culture we all know and love, the village was an outdoor site complete with circus tents and space for circus people of all kinds and creeds to set up camp. Living, learning, and working together in one space, the village created the perfect environment to explore what we do, how we learn, and test new ways of doing things - all whilst celebrating every aspect of the circus art form we share. Supported and encouraged by a professional creative team from across all reaches of the circus world - the Circus Village was the village you wished you grew up in.
