Geographical remit: 


Upswing is an award-winning contemporary circus company founded in 2006. Since then the company has created world-class performance and participatory experiences. We use circus to tell new stories in extraordinary ways, amplifying and celebrating the skills, creative talents and stories of diverse artists and communities. We work with schools and colleges, organise high energy workshops in community spaces and care homes, and provide mentoring and training for emerging circus artists.  


Upswing’s work is not confined to theatres and festivals; it reaches people in unexpected ways, wherever they are. That might look like a digital trail through a local park, a circus takeover in a care home, a large-scale spectacle on a rooftop, or a bedtime story for families in libraries. We expand the possibilities of circus as an art form, pushing the boundaries of what it can be and using it to help us shape the world we want to live in.
