Some History...

Fuse Circus collaborates with performing artists from a variety of areas including contemporary dance, physical theatre and local musicians - working to bridge artistic boundaries and enrich our own and others practice.

In 2008 Fuse collaborated with Footnote Dance Company to produce “Footnote Fused”. Developed as part of Choreolab, and Fringe 08, “Footnote Fused” was presented as the support act for the Summer City season of Gravity & Other Myths.

As well as producing touring theatrical shows, Fuse Circus delivers spectacular performances for corporate clients: from huge events like the Vodafone Music Awards to the more intimate opening of the boutique hotel Ohtel. Visit our gallery to see the Fuse team in action!

Founded by Tom Beauchamp in 2005, we are taking new directions, growing and developing as artists, and as a creative company. In 2008 Fuse Productions Ltd re-branded as Fuse Circus. As a company of artists and creative people we are looking forward to a bright future.
