We are Cirkus Cirkör

Circus artists do what we all do in everyday life: collaborate, fail, control, theorize, put their trust to the test.

But they do it 30 feet up in the air without a safety line. Everything is heightened when it’s a matter of life and death.

Quotes from the show Borders.

Circus hall, with Northern Europe’s best circus training facilities and possibilities.

We are experts in collaboration & innovation. Circus is our secret ingredient.

Cirkus Cirkör is a leading performing arts company that employs the language of circus to create groundbreaking artistic experiences. But Cirkör is so much more than that: Cirkör is a school, a meeting place, a social actor, a laboratory and a training venue. Every day, we train ourselves and others in seeing, thinking, talking and acting as circus artists.

25 years of Circus Arts & Learning

Northern Europe's largest circus company was founded in 1995 and has since created magnificent experiences on major stages, in classrooms, at nursing homes, in a river and at distinguished universities. Who knows where we’ll show up next?!

Tilde Björfors

Made in Botkyrka

In 1995, Cirkus Cirkör was founded by Tilde Björfors together with young circus artists. The goal was to establish contemporary circus as an art form in Sweden. Cirkus Cirkör's performances have since toured both in Sweden and internationally and been seen by almost three million people. Tilde has directed and/or been the artistic director of the majority of these productions.
