Vision To change the world with circus
Cirkus Cirkör is a contemporary circus company since 1995 founded by our artistic director Tilde Björfors. Today Cirkör is touring the whole world, including Cirkör LAB, Cirkör Event and Cirkör Education. Cirkör stages circus arts training and education for young people with or without disabilities, and has an upper secondary school.
The Cirkör House (training hall and headquarter) is situated in Alby in Botkyrka, one of Sweden’s youngest and most international municipalities, where long-term and social circus projects are implemented in the community development. One of Cirkör’s statutes is to inspire and to be inspired by the youths and the street arts. The core values of the organization are cocky commitment, individualistic solidarity, and quality madness.
The pedagogic department meets 30 000 children, youths and staff working with youngsters per year, in 50 different cities across Sweden through workshops, courses, camps, open training, and school activities. The circus training is given in order to further personal development, to promote creativity, and to produce performances. Cirkör also offers possibilities for young people to work as circus teachers, to teach other youths.
