Community Troupe

Please email after submitting an application!

Kirkos is Circus Up’s spectacular youth community troupe! Founded in 2020, Kirkos performs bold and uplifting shows in the greater Boston area. In the tradition of "social circus," these youth circus artists demonstrate what's possible when we stay curious about each other's differences and leverage each other's unique strengths. Kirkos team members address social issues while crafting collaborative circus acts that surprise, baffle, and delight. 


Kirkos is one of the ways Circus Up works hard to increase access to circus arts. Troupe members (ages 8-18) are alumni of Circus Up programs and are always learning new skills through Circus Up classes. 


You can find Kirkos performing for local organizations and at a variety of community events. Book them if you want to celebrate what it looks like for youth to courageously learn, play, and create together.
