One World Circus

About One World Circus

One World Circus draws upon cross-cultural traditions of community carnival and celebration. Our work aims to affirm both the dignity of every person and the joy of existance. We believe everyone can be an artist and that art has the power to transform the world.


One World Circus is Jake Weinstein and Lissa McLeod. We have been creating circus and street theater with children and adults for twenty years. We are accordionists, stilt walkers, jugglers, aerialists and clowns and have made giant puppets for performances workshops all over the world. Both of us are arts educators, experienced in working with children and adults from 2 – 92 years old. Workshop and performance venues include preschools, elementary, middle and high schools, libraries, summer camps, and street festivals. We are an eclectic performance troupe based in Knoxville, Tennessee. We've been performing and teaching circus since 1990.
