SAN DIEGO'S ORIGINAL SINGLE-RING CIRCUS
Fern Street Circus is renowned for locally created acts, live original music, costumes and props, and a physical surrounding that reaches the level of public art. Fern Street's unified presentation of professional and aspirational (apprentice) performers has won praise since our beginnings.
Fern Street Circus is available to grace your community event, corporate gathering, or fund raising gala: from a full, customizable show to a Fern Street Sampler.
We bring a cavalcade of acrobats, stiltwalkers, clowns, jugglers, musicians, and variety artists. Individual Fern Street performers are also available to enliven and animate your event, as meet-&-greet or walk-around artists.
Fern Street Circus – Performing Artists in Residence at San Diego International Airport. A 1-year residency (first-ever at the Airport) which will enliven public space and enable creation of a brand-new show about travel, work, and family. Look to our Events page for up-coming activity.
"The Art Program is proud to launch its new Performing Arts Residency Program in 2016. The Performing Arts Residency Program provides a platform for the development and performance of new work that simultaneously enriches the airport environment and cultivates the regional performing arts community. This opportunity is a process-oriented residency program open to contemporary performing arts in all disciplines—dance, music, theater, as well as cross-disciplinary digital media.
Fern Street Circus is the first performance group selected for the Residency Program. Fern Street Circus serves families and transforms neighborhoods through the performance and teaching of circus arts. They are known for transcending barriers between people of varying cultures and languages, combining physical and theatrical skills, and merging the magnificent and the everyday."
