We use social circus to improve lives through play and connection.
Our small team of performers, facilitators and creators is based in Leith, Scotland. We are brought together by a belief that playfulness, connection and quality are really important and have been collectively creating circus for over a decade.
Since Think Circus CIC began in 2017, we have delivered workshops and shows across Scotland with over 4,000 participants. We love collaborating with local and national organisations such as YMCA, LGBT Youth, the National Trust, the Greenspace Trust and Sustrans. Our proudest achievement has been delivering our regular programmes to women, young people and families in Leith, where neighbouring areas to our teaching venue are found in the bottom decile of the SIMD.
Our vision is a supportive, connected society where all humans are seen as incredible and equally celebrated.
Inspired by her own journey through the challenges of learning physical activity, Kat found that circus opened doors in her whole approach to life, and is passionate about passing this on to others. Kat is a circus artist, teacher and event manager.
Her experience in the Scottish arts and performance scene spans over ten years and includes establishing the annual MugStock Festival, touring the Commonwealth Youth Circus and working on events such as the Village Storytelling Festival and NVA’s Speed of Light. She has a degree in English Literature and a Diploma in Physical Theatre Practice.
