'Síolta' consists of six artists who came together with a mutual vision to create a high-level ground-based circus show, directed by Paddy Waters.

They have recently been awarded a two-week residency at C.In.E, Mallorca in partnership with The Irish Aerial Creation Centre, Irish World AcademyInstitut Ramon Llull, and the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS), after which they premiered their brand new work in Mallorca and Ireland at the National Circus Festival of Ireland.

The members are:

Production: Tony Mahon (Ire) - Juggler & acrobat, and music Edan Ray.

Their work in progress is a show featuring highly skilled acrobatics and manipulation by artists who have trained around the world and have come together to plant a new seed in the Irish circus scene.

Angelique just won the Spirit of Wit: Moira Brady Averill Award at Dublin Fringe Festival with her new solo “SPIT”. A one-woman circus revenge show, “SPIT” is a stripped back showcase into the celebration of the fierce and wild. With relentlessly ferocious circus; tight wire, trapeze and tomatoes, expect to attack hard and spit back!
