INAC is an international center dedicated exclusively to circus arts, based in the North of Portugal.

The Institute has two main missions: to train artists who have an multidisciplinary approach which can lead to the development and establishment of new artistic aesthetics; and to reach out to all audiences, spreading and implementing contemporary circus in Portugal, providing a new offer and enriching the current cultural panorama.

Traditionally, the circus is a "big family", and INAC is no exception. All of our projects are made with love for what we do, compassion, and a lot of hard work.


INAC’s auditions will be online.
