Extraordinary Bodies is the UK’s leading professional integrated circus company – a strong and unlikely partnership between leading showmakers Cirque Bijou and Diverse City. Our partnership breaks boundaries and our work does too.

Extraordinary Bodies create large scale, bold, radical and joyous performance. Our artistic practice increases awareness, capacity and leadership for integration of D/deaf, disabled and non-disabled artists working equally together in the arts nationally.

We make work with, for and about our communities; work that represents the diverse makeup of our society – onstage, offstage and in the audience.

Extraordinary Bodies is a company of artistic activators and activists, a collaboration between colleagues from Cirque Bijou and Diverse City, and a diverse and exciting array of creative minds, artists, theatre practitioners, musicians, writers and crew. You can meet the team the creative team and artists on the Extraordinary Bodies website.
