Acrojou was formed in 2006 by company co-founders Jeni Barnard and Barney White.
Acrojou create highly visual circus and theatre performances, for outdoor events worldwide. With backgrounds in circus, design, theatre, dance and engineering, the company combine disciplines, seeking narrative at the meeting point of bodies, structures and materials. Their work is usually non-verbal, telling human stories through physicality and visual design.
The company’s mission is to create ambitious performance with integrity: work addressing the human condition that is accessible, challenging, and crafted for presentation outdoors, where people of all ages and backgrounds can access it for free in their local spaces.
Acrojou’s work has been seen live by hundreds of thousands of people across seventeen countries. Acrojou is led by Artistic Director Jeni Barnard and is considered to be one of the UK’s leading circus and street arts companies.
Performance crafted from circus, story and soul.
