"Anyone longing for a unique theatrical experience, featuring a masterful group of artists who trash formulaic and traditional methods, and take astonishing physical risks with precision, narrative, and perception, must see this extraordinary company perform."
-Judy Finelli, new circus pioneer, founder of San Francisco Circus Center, member of Pickle Family Circus

Founded in 2012 by Artistic Director Terry Crane, the company blends virtuosic circus skill, dance and physical theater to create work that is poetic, a little absurd, beautiful and deeply relatable. Acrobatic Conundrum has produced five shows and appeared nationally and internationally at such venues as New York City’s SummerStage, the Chicago Contemporary Circus Festival, the Smithsonian Museum’s Renwick Gallery, the Vancouver CircusFest, TEDxRainier, and The Backstreet Festival in Alexandria, Egypt.
