rainforest circus

The Rainforest Circus has evolved over 13 years of collaborative creation.  With each year the intrigue grows and The Rainforest has since evolved into a touring production, performing for thousands of people, and including hundreds of community participants. The changing themes of the production-always accessible to children and thought provoking for adults-tell important stories about the state of our world today.

During the first seven years, a small group of committed contributors came together each summer to create a magical performance in the rainforest. Dancers, aerialists, actors, musicians, designers, poets, stage managers, technicians, producers, volunteers, children, youth, adults; so many people generously gave their time, creativity and passion to make the Rainforest Circus into what it has become.

In recent years, The Rainforest Circus has been traveling to more distant shores, and is inviting more community collaboration. Our first collaborative circus production was the 2018 Rainforest Circus Submerged. Since then, we have toured this show twice for 4 communities, inviting indigenous knowledge keepers and community members to contribute to and participate in the show.

Dates: 2010-present


In 2024 we are moving on from our much loved collaborative show, Submerged, and onto a new theme: Intelligence. This show will explore various under and over recognized forms of intelligence in our world through our usual mix of theatrics, sounds, aerial acrobatics, and installation art. Save the dates of August 9-14 and keep an eye on our event page: Intelligence for ticketing information.
