Yarn Acrobatics

Knitting Peace on tour since 2013

A poetic circus performance filled with yarn, tangles, ropes and threads. Questions about striving and knitting are woven together with breathtaking artistry, looped live music and suggestive scenography. Five circus artists invite the audience to be embraced by enigmatic music, delicate poetry and a forceful quest for meaning.

A worldwide peace movement

During its tours, Knitting Peace has engaged and met peace knitters from all around the world. The amount of knittings they have sent us is overwhelming - it is clear that the combination of circus, striving, and knitting has grown into a movement of its own.

Way beyond the stage

Of course, you can Bungy jump from a hot air balloon!

Puff: A poetic and nerve-wracking homage to the innovative power of circus art. When the pandemic closed down all cultural venues, we hopped in a hot air balloon and let the circus fly over Stockholm in a unique collaboration with Stockholm Cultural Festival.

Circus into deep water

Our pedagogy

Research & Innovation

Cirkör's History

Tilde Björfors


International artists and A-list educators

No animals, just acrobats

Cirkus Cirkör does not have a permanent ensemble but a lot of recurring artists. We also have Sweden's largest contact network of freelance circus artists.

Unique Pedagogy

We are Sweden's largest employer of circus educators. Our pedagogues teach the term courses and tour Sweden's schools with shows and workshops.

Open positions

Cirkus Cirkör offers a dynamic workplace, close to art and social development, where you will be part of a generous and challenging group of artists, creators and office acrobats.

A Performance, a Process

How a book about feminism and the Bible became a hit show

In the book "God’s Disobedient Rib", the reader follows along as Gunilla Thorgren reads the Bible from her feminist point of view. A large ensemble of circus artists and actors tells the story through words, acrobatics and music.

We created a circus opera based on Gandhi's life and received standing ovations

Cirkus Cirkör's collaboration with one of our time's greatest composers, Philip Glass, became a circus opera that made its way from Stockholm to New York.
