“The Circus Project is the kind of innovative organization that puts Oregon on the map as a destination for arts and culture.”  

—Governor Kate Brown, State of Oregon


Who we are:

The Circus Project is Portland’s center for contemporary circus arts. We transcend social barriers and inspire personal transformation through circus instruction and performance.

We offer classes and workshops for adults and children of all ages along two tracks—recreational and pre-professional. 

Our Performance Troupe creates cutting-edge, world-class productions for Portland audiences and beyond. 

In addition, we teach Circus in the Schools and partner with local nonprofits to engage homeless and traditionally underserved youth.
