Our Mission

Our Mission

Since forming in 2010, CircusMASH has maintained a very simple ethos; circus is our passion and community is our purpose. Specialising in the development of circus in the West Midlands, CircusMASH aims to engage communities by making the many benefits accessible and approachable. To do this, various programmes are available to suit the different needs of participants. Not only can circus offer someone a hobby and outlet for creative expression, but it can also offer someone a passion and thriving career. By focusing on the individual needs of the community, CircusMASH believes that anyone can achieve the goals they set themselves and facilitate this through training and performance.

In addition to the work done within the community, CircusMASH also strives to develop emerging and professional artists within the circus industry. The importance of regionally developed circus artists is immeasurable, so CircusMASH offers an outlet to experience what professional circus is in the West Midlands. High quality, professional, knowledgeable and passionate are all things you will find to be part of the CircusMASH ethos. By maintaining the highest standards of circus and safety procedures, artists can ensure that they will have training space, masterclasses and opportunities to perform in professional projects through the CircusMASH network.

Together with the local and circus community, CircusMASH are bridging the gap between what is possible and what is unimaginable. Come join the circus family and achieve the impossible!

“By turning you upside down, we teach you to stand on your own two feet. By dropping objects we teach you to catch them. By having you walk over someone, we teach you to take care of them. By having you clown around, we teach you to take yourself seriously.” Bob Sugarman
