General

It’s winter, the season of “Tai Kwun Circus Plays”! During the Christmas and New Year holidays, our city’s circus artists will join acrobatic veterans from around the world to present an array of dreamy, exciting, and innovative circus performances and workshops.

Before Santa arrives in town, immerse yourself in the otherworldly journey of Flotados by the award-winning Spanish troupe. Performing from a piano hanging at 8 meters high, it tells an enchanting love story through music, acrobatics, dance and video projections. However, Christmas could not be complete without Clara and the Prince. Local physical theatre TS Crew has reimagined the classical ballet The Nutcracker, giving it a “Hong Kong touch” featuring lion dances, parkour and fire-breathing at the innovative ChristMice Cracker.

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s sold-out clown comedy Only Bones 1.0, as well as the breath-taking Czech performance PLI, are set to crack you up and make you laugh inside Tai Kwun throughout the Christmas and New Year period. Our season will conclude with the most anticipated finale – Ting-koo-ki Mad Skills Battle! Establishing itself as the ultimate circus gala in the region, 16 electrifying young circus artists from Hong Kong and Taiwan will give their best feats on the outdoor stage in a competitive yet friendly battle setting.

Designed around the performances, a series of family-friendly art workshops echoing the theme of The Nutcracker will be offered to the public free of charge. Aspiring performers are invited to join the “Circus Camp for Professionals” to brush up on their techniques.

Spanning across three weeks, including Christmas and New Year, join us in this joyful circus party at Tai Kwun!
