For us Circus Space Pirates, it is essential to encourage people from all backgrounds to feel empowered to express their true nature in a playful connection with the world, and allow their freedom and creativity to turn dreams into a shared reality. This invitation supports the values of the individual in the realm of solidarity, respect, human rights & dignity – with this, we explore a togetherness where pluralism, integration, tolerance, justice and equality can thrive: a place of belonging where we can live and contribute as a community – valuing our diversity and embracing our potential. Together we manifest the transformation we wish to see in the world.

Our mobile actions are transforming public spaces into a vital portal of playful expression, creativity, and togetherness. Our aim is to share circus with a variety of audiences with different needs, backgrounds and potentials. We welcome everyone to join in a colorful journey of self-expression and co-creation. Our participatory interaction invites various target groups for a dialogue where creative language of circus becomes a powerful transformation in the public space: streets, parks, festivals, demonstrations and social institutions are the scenario of our adventure. Through our circus art, we establish a safe environment which stimulates joint expression, social connection and feeling of self-value.
“Always in motion is the future.” Yoda
We believe that solidarity and creativity are essential to navigate in an uncertain and complex world, changing at a more rapid speed than ever before. Within this transformation, our learning process as individuals and as a collective is a path to grow towards true happiness and peaceful togetherness. It demands us to take a holistic view, which acknowledges the cognitive, social, physical, spiritual and emotional qualities of human nature, and how they interact and complement each other in a multi-faceted interdependency. We are now able to draw on findings from psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology describing the benefits of creative learning. This insight offers a new vision for a society built around our fundamental capacity of altruism and cooperation when we feel inspired, valued and integrated. Our mission is to co-create experiences where we can flourish our true nature in a honest and joyful expression of our live energy. We understand this as an open door to move towards happiness and fullfilment – this is the ground for the transformation of our world today.
