About Almanac Dance Circus Theatre

Almanac Dance Circus Theater forges ensemble-driven performances that fuse acrobatics, storytelling, and daring physicality. 



Our inspiration springs from timeless stories and new observations that provoke us to play together, like kids in the sand, revealing both ourselves as individuals and human nature at large. Our work is funny except when it’s serious, sublimely stupid and abashedly sincere. We are craftsmen, choreographing adventures for ourselves to embark upon and nightly see where we land.



Using this unique form of inquiry, Almanac produces both ensemble-prompted and commissioned works, develops educational partnerships for students of all ages, and leads an open-ensemble circus gymnasium for professional performers.



We push the limits of ourselves and our fields, deepening the identity and raising the profile of the performing arts community in Philadelphia.
