Who says there are only a few ways we can play in the "park"?

Who says that the circus is only for certain people to play in?

Let’s reimagine something new together!

Through a variety of circus acts and childhood games, Circus Park subverts existing stereotypes regarding the use of everyday objects. The familiar space of a playground is used as the starting point of the story, connecting memories and inviting audiences to freely imagine and share an adventure in this “circus park” filled with creativity.

Created by Taiwan’s Circus Gate, this interactive experience asks the question, what should a park with recreational and social functions look like in light of the rapid development of cities today? Can everyday objects trigger our imagination and create joy, and how do we break out of the intangible frameworks that restrict us?
