Contemporary circus is a blend of circus, dance, theater and music. It perspires force and creativity, and transmits a sense of magic that few other art forms are capable of.

Cirkus Cirkör is one of the leading companies in Europe. It is through them that contemporary circus has been introduced into Swedish cultural life, not only through their shows but also through the prestigious school they run.

In the facilities of the school, circus students from all over the world train towards a life of international shows and tours. Discipline, toil and sacrifice belong to the daily life, and sometimes also pain and disappointment.

Their driving force is lust for creating and a uncommonly strong sense of self-surpassing. That, and the deep comradeship within the group (after all they literally put their lives in each other’s hands) make it worthwhile fighting for.
