WHO WE ARE
Bliss Circus is a magical training space located in the beach side jungle of South Goa. We are home to monkeys of all kinds, including circus artists who come to pass the winter in the sunny tropical location. Bliss offers intensive classes, workshops, and retreats in the aerial and flow arts domains, we also host artist residencies, and produce exciting shows.
Open from December until March, this is a fabulous place to spend time and improve your circus skills, meet up with other artists, participate in shows, and play on the beach. We boast an 8-meter high, open-air training space only steps away from the infamously beautiful white sand beaches of South Goa, for training with an abundance of apparatus choices.
We have missed running our usual events and are also grateful that this time has birthed a new training at Bliss, and this upcoming 2023/24 season we are back on with both the return of our silk and rope training retreat, a circus festival, Aerial silk TTC, and more!
Get to Know Us
Bliss Circus started as a festival, the Bliss Circus Week, in Auroville at Eluciole Circus, in 2014. We came to Goa the following year, again running as a festival, a gathering to bring circus people together in Sita Circus in Patnem. It was then that we decided to open a training space in Goa and thus founded in 2016 in Palolem.
We created the space with the intention to provide a space for aerialists and circus artists to come together to train, create, learn, and perform in a beautiful beachfront venue. We have survived and grown since establishing as a venue, adding more programs, and more equipment, and shared so much creativity with many international and Indian instructors, artists, and students.
