Circus Factory is a community of professional and aspiring circus artists who run Cork’s only dedicated circus training and creation space based in Cork City, Ireland.

Circus Factory has four core staff members working on a part-time basis as well as coaches and tutors. It is a space that welcomes and aims to provide training and performance opportunities to anyone interested in circus. We aim to provide a secure and professional training and creation space for members from beginners to professional, adults and youth.

Our activities involve:

To benefit the community and advance circus arts in Cork:

  • Provide a training space to members.
  • Run a yearly program of intensives and workshops.
  • Provide time and equipment for those who are not professionals, but who are interested in circus.
  • Provide a space for creation and rehearsals of new material with residency possibilities for companies.

We also host weekly open training sessions for the public to drop in and try something new. These currently run on Wednesday evenings (7-9 pm). Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates on our activities, classes and performances.
