Formosa Circus Art

“Formosa Circus Art” is named after this beautiful island, Taiwan. Its purpose is to develop the various contemporary circus arts of Taiwan, mixing them with other styles of performance including traditional forms, acrobatics, street culture and theatre arts; trying to create a physical vocabulary that is unique in Taiwan. Our team members come from many different fields of performance, including among others acrobatics, juggling, dance and drama. Through this work, we have over ten full-time performers.


The predecessor of Formosa Circus Art was MIX Acrobatics Theater, founded in 2009, and registered in 2011. We decided in 2014 to proudly sport the name of our beautiful island Formosa and to relaunch the company as “Formosa Circus Arts” – FOCA. The very same year, we appeared at TED x Taipei. In 7 years, we have performed in many places both in Taiwan and abroad, including in 2013 Festival Pisteurs d'Etoiles in Obernai and Festival d'Avignon Off in France, and KAKISENI Music Festival in Malaysia. We were invited to perform at A l'Est du Nouveau in Champagne in France, 2015 Tini Tinou International Circus Festival of Cambodia and the Taiwan Season of Edinburgh Festival Fringe. In 2016, we were invited by Semper Opernball Dresden in Germany, Macau International Arts Festival, Kaohsiung Spring Arts Festival, Taipei Arts Festival and Kaohsiung Weiwuying Arts Festival. In 2017, we were invited by DGI Sport & Culture Festival in Denmark, Festival d'Avignon Off in France and Tainan Arts Festival.

In 2018, we were invited by Setouchi Creative Circus Festival in Japan, Busan Street Arts Festival in South Korea, Taipei Children’s Arts Festival, Taoyuan Iron Rose Arts Festival and Tainan Arts Festival.
