Acts For Hire

Kinetica are highly skilled circus artists who specialize in creating stylish and unique performances to suit your theme and budget. There are no events too big or small as Kinetica can provide anything from roving performances and individual circus acts; to custom circus shows and full-length theatrical productions.

Popular themes encompassed by Kinetica’s performances include The Roaring 20’s, Burlesque, Nautical, Tango, Spanish Flamenco, Arabian Nights, Cirque and more.

Kinetica’s performances can be choreographed to be slow and ambient, strong and sexy, mysterious, quirky, elegant, lyrical or sophisticated. However, underlying the act choreography there is always a strong gymnastics and dance technique that sets Kinetica’s performers apart and allows our performers to move effortlessly from ground to air.

Kinetica collaborates with local fashion designers 'Revolt Couture' to create costumes that are both unique and fashion forward. We are also able to collaborate with musicians to create circus performances that are enhanced by the ambience of live music. Previous collaborations have included aerial performances accompanied by ‘Tenorcello’ and Spanish Guitarist Tim Andrew.
