Breaking Circus Collective

Breaking Circus Collective (BCC) is a collection of contemporary circus arts working out of Kjipuktuk (Halifax, NS). Breaking Circus sets and breaks their own rules in order to create, explore and engage with the full spectrum of our human experience. The company reaches into the unknown and finds new ways to weave stories through cross-discipline experiments and integration of technology. The current collective includes the original 6 members plus a small roster of talented new recruits/ interns. BCC is Black-led with at least half of its members being IBPOC-identified since its inception in 2016. The BCC is deeply committed to inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility and was formed out of the desire to create a supportive ecosystem for IBPOC artists and artists from other underrepresented groups.
