how it all began and where it is now
The CIRK is the result of the combined efforts of an amazing team of people from very different backgrounds. They all shared a dream to create a space that would inspire creative expression and art in its many forms, across multiple disciplines and who wanted to bring the magic of cirque to everyone in a way that was unforgettable and unique.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the entertainment and group-training sectors crashed completely, along with the call for corporate entertainment – one of the biggest parts of The CIRK’s revenue streams. For several months in 2020 Cirk moved to a fully online business, after which they opened a stunning venue in Randburg which offers in-person classes and small, intimate shows for the public.
Before Covid hit, the CIRK company was best known for their spectacular corporate entertainment at some of the biggest events in South Africa, and Africa. Since the pandemic the ability to host massive corporates events has fallen away, but a need for small, innovative performances has arisen. From breath-taking aerial performances to ultimate professionalism, the Cirk can offer it all – big or small.
Learn cirque arts from the best in the business – from silks, aerial hoop and acrobatics, to stretch, pole dance and kids classes – The Cirk has something for everyone. Anyone can join these fantastic classes – absolute beginners and aficionados alike.
Can’t join our live classes? Don’t worry! We have some fantastic prerecorded classes available for absolutely everybody! We have a selection of classes that are floor-based for those without aerial equipment, and also aerial-based for those with aerial rigging at home.
