ANZCA is happy to announce that very soon we will be running a Circus Census! We’ve seen circus in Aotearoa has grown massively over the last five years and we want to back that knowledge up with some data helping us effectively direct our energy towards the needs of the community.
ANZCA wants to make sure we are supporting, representing and advocating for the circus community, making sure our efforts are best serving you all.
We will be announcing the start of our census soon. Census "Officers" will go around studios and circus communities all around NZ helping fill out the short questionnaire.
Keep an eye open and make sure to participate so we can all work together for the benefit of everyone!
Circulation recently took place in Whare Flats, Dunedin. The festival kicked off the Wandering Circus Tour with five days of community circus oriented workshops, fire spinning, and performances.
The crew are now on tour with the Wandering Circus, presenting a dazzling lineup of international performers and homegrown talent. The Wandering Circus Troupe is travelling the South Island this summer, bringing exciting shows and workshops for all ages to many cities and towns along the way! There will be something for everyone, with performances featuring modern circus acts, flow arts, and much much more.
The Tour kicks off at Circulation Festival, Dunedin (8th-12th Nov) and finishes at Under the Spinfluence in Wellington (14th-17th Dec). Check out all the events here
Our Safe Guide - Rosin Socks has been unleashed! Have you got your copy? We released it few months ago and we have had amazing feedback from circus practitioners from all over NZ. ANZCA is in the process applying to get the guide endorsed by WorkSafe so we can reach the full national community.
Rosin Socks is a guide in development, and will continue to be updated so we can best guide our community to a safer practice. Part of this includes incorporating feedback from the community it serves, so please feel free to send us your thoughts on what you’ve read to firstname.lastname@example.org
