Knitting for peace became our passion

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.

Welcome behind the scenes

Meet the artists touring with Knitting Peace.

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.

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.

We have performed in every continent except Antarctica

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.

Acrobats and synchronized swimmers in and above Stockholm's waters

"Aquanauts" was born from a unique collaboration between synchronized swimmers and circus artists, who created a site-specific performance performed in water, air and fire.

A house full of life

Northern Europe's largest circus hall

International artists, children and students train under the same roof in Cirkör House in Alby.

Chill with Cirkör

Three Sundays each term, we open up our training hall for those who want to try training circus, practice parkour, hang out in our chillout corners, watch others train, have coffee or just step by to say hello.
