Circomedia was founded in 1994 by physical theatre expert, Bim Mason and choreographer and performer Helen Crocker. Circomedia rose out of the ashes of Fooltime, Britain’s first circus school – and ever since has attracted students from all over the world. It is different from many circus schools as there is a heavy emphasis on combining traditional circus skills with physical theatre and creativity. It is this approach to performance that has led to Circomedia being acknowledged as a centre of excellence worldwide.
