Tumble Circus

Established 13 years ago, Tumble Circus is a unique experience of innovative Irish circus, specializing in high skill circus street theatre. The shows are a light-hearted jaunt into the soul of man, alive with the endless possibility of the human body, the joy of performing, and the humanity of success and failure. Ordinary people, doing extraordinary things! At the core is a dedication to training, learning and constantly pushing the boundaries.

Tumble Circus have toured extensively throughout Ireland, Europe and Australia. In 2006 Tumble Circus were commissioned by Temple Bar Cultural Trust to make a full length outdoor show and were invited by the Irish Circus Convention to headline at their showcase performance. They've represented Ireland at La Piste aux Espoirs, Belgium, Fira Tarrega, Spain and have appeared at prestigious festivals such as Dublin Theatre Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Trapezi Festival, Reus, National Australia Circus Festival, Tasmania, La Strada, Bremen, Brighton Festival, England, Street Performers World Champions, Dublin, World Busker Festival, Christchurch, New Zealand and many more.

Death or Circus

Modern life is rubbish. We need advice, guidance, and heroes. Kenneth Fall, the carny god and saviour of Africa, and Tina Machina, the Queen of Sweden and new age white witch of circus, are under qualified but overly eager to share their absurd views on how to cure the planet. Can celebrity anarchists and circus devilment save our children?

Death or Circus is a satire on modern culture using circus skills (duo trapeze, corde lisse, partner acrobatics, hula hoop, slapstick and clowning). Street theatre from the dark side of feel good. Dysfunctional family entertainment.

Through circus, clown and theatre, Tumble Circus hope to disturb, take over, inspire change and mostly remind people that they are not alone.
