About Us

The Australian Circus & Physical Theatre Association (ACAPTA) is the peak body and service organisation for the growing contemporary circus and physical theatre sector. We exist to support the on-going development of the Australian contemporary circus & physical theatre sector, advocating for and producing development opportunities for our many artists and companies.

ACAPTA provides membership, networking and advocacy services to all professional, youth, Indigenous, community, small to medium, emerging and independent circus and physical theatre companies and artists. We provide opportunities for artists to: consult, network, advocate, lobby and collaborate.

ACAPTA delivers a national program that is sector driven and which actively engages in developing new markets and audiences.

ACAPTA is committed to ensuring that the contemporary circus and physical theatre sector (a key asset in Australia’s cultural export market) continues to realise its full potential as an inventive, vibrant and world-class industry.
