Human beings have been called Homo Ludens – the playful ape. We feel that play is an essential element of our human nature. As air, water and food are vital for the body so is play vital for the spirit. Bringing people together and creating an interchange between the players and the audience is at the heart of what we do. Performances by the company are innovative, slightly provocative, and can be understood in any language. We like to say that Zirk Theatre is “sensational”: implying that our job is to kindle the senses and open up the world for people to see in new ways.
