Sam Thomas (Artistic Director)
“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.”
Mandy Field (Creative Producer)
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.
