Creating Magic Everyday

Bliss Circus is a magical training space located in the beach side jungle of South Goa!

 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 mostly in the aerial domain, we also host artist residencies, and produce exciting shows! Open from October until April, 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 aerial training, with an abundance of apparatus choices.

 

After 2 years of the border into India being closed or very difficult to enter, we are celebrating things opening up again! All previous long-term visas have been reinstated and new visas are now being issued! We have missed running our usual events and are also grateful that this time has birthed a new training at Bliss, and this upcoming 2022/23 season we will be back on with both the return of our training camp, our new pro-track course, and more!

Our Story

Bliss Circus was 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 Bliss Circus was 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.

We are entering a new chapter of the circus as we move to our new home in south goa, which is still yet to be announced! Stay tuned as the story continues...
