In Pierrot our participants focus on:

  • Equilibristics/balancing, juggling, manipulation, aerial, acrobatics, clowning
  • International Youth Exchanges
  • Professional Training Opportunities such as CTF (Circus Transformation)
  • Stage presence
  • Scratch Night: A monthly event produced by our Pierrot group, is a monthly showing organised by the Pierrot’s, Youth Forum and Tutors as an informal evening for artists to present work in progress to their peers in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Event Production: All elements of circus and performance


All of our members have the opportunity to take part in Galway Community Circus performances – from theatre shows and Big Top Tent shows to street performances and parades. Participation is strictly voluntary and tremendously fun!
