The Risk Agitator is a U.S. network of artistic risk-takers.  join us.


In circus, we may spend our lives training for that "Big Trick", but what does that skill really mean in the context of our work?  Let's give our skills meaning! We want new contexts, new audiences, new ways of engaging our skills. We want to be agitated.  American circus artists are not supported in experimentation in the same way as in other countries, so we have to do it ourselves by forming a network of risk takers!

Curated experimentation periods designed to shake up our ideas of what circus is and how and where it is done.   Opportunities for members only.
