Vulcana Women’s Circus

Vulcana Women’s Circus works with the circus traditions of inclusiveness, strength, excitement, and daring to transform and empower individuals and communities.

We value women as leaders and role models, and believe that empowered women are essential in building and shaping strong communities.  We see that circus is a transformational tool which can build that empowerment. Vulcana respects the individual and encourages expanded notions of “normal.” We strongly believe that challenge by choice, in the spirit of play, builds confidence and capacity.

Mission

Vulcana’s circus workshop and performance projects engage a broad range of community participants and work in partnership with arts and community organisations to create opportunities for cultural expression and community development. In a safe, playful space we encourage participants to be themselves with joy and push the boundaries of what is achievable as one or in a group. Vulcana offers:

  • A talent for everyone!
  • A shared physical language for people of all backgrounds to explore, express, and build connections
  • Opportunities for individual or community expression and collaboration, including performance opportunities
  • Professional pathways for those who hear the Circus calling!

Values

Vulcana values women as leaders and role models, and holds that empowered women are essential in building and shaping strong communities. We value Circus as a transformational tool which can build that empowerment. Vulcana respects the individual and encourages expanded notions of “normal.” We hold that challenge by choice, in the spirit of play, builds confidence and capacity.
