Thunar Circus is a contemporary circus creation group based in Taiwan, taking an artistic and poetic approach to the performances. We hope to carry forward the spirit of contemporary circus, develop the creativity of performers, and provide continuously original and thoughtful circus productions for the national & international stage.

‘Thunar’ is an unlimited free space, in which we experiment and explore the contemporary circus art in these multiple faces. ‘Thunar’ is an unlimited life, in which all of our actions are connected with our culture in order to let our acrobatics represent the humanity. ‘Thunar’ is also a collective space, in which, through sharing the artistic creations of the contemporary circus, artists and audiences link together and reflect on the society that we’re experiencing.

Collaborating with artists from different fields, Thunar Circus explores diverse styles and performing languages for the contemporary circus and pursues divergent ways of seeing.

Missions:

· Dedicating ourselves to the creation of contemporary circus in Taiwan;
· Promoting the concept of arts without boundary by presenting performances in public space;
