Operations Team

Kirsty Sutherland (General Manager)

Castlemaine Circus is a wonderful non competitive, highly skilled and social activity for young and old. Participants come from all over the region to engage in our classes and our performances. We also provide circus workshops for schools and community groups.

Our programs foster a culture of support and inclusion, where everyone has the right to belong, work at their own level, and contribute in a meaningful way. Castlemaine Circus is creating an environment within which young people can explore their passions, in a space that they can feel ownership over, facilitated by experienced professional artists and supported by a broad circus community. I am proud to be a part of that community.

“Castlemaine Circus recognises that circus training provides a positive and supportive environment for young people with an emphasis on physical activity, team work, improved co- ordination and strengthened self-confidence. Circus uses humour and allows participants to communicate feelings with increased confidence and positivity.

We play for real. Circus is hyper real.”
