FAUNA CIRCUS LTD
...is a multi-discipline acrobatics and contemporary circus creation house based in the UK, focussed on combining high level acrobatics and physical theatre with live music. The company was started by six world class performers from around the globe; five acrobats who met at the world's leading circus school, Sweden's DOCH, and an award winning live musician.
The company formed in 2016 when offered a British Arts Council grant to develop and present part of a show at the Glastonbury Festival of Performing Arts. From there, the 2017 Adelaide Fringe Festival was an opportunity to develop a full length show, the first version of present day "Fauna", where it received 5 star reviews, a Best Circus and Physical Theatre award, and the Emerging Artist award. Further creation followed with multiple residencies in Sweden, Germany, and the Czech Republic, before showcasing the finished piece at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, winning the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane award for Best Circus.
And that was just the beginning...
