Circus Bella is an open air, one-ring circus featuring contemporary, high-level acts set to an original score performed by live musicians. David Hunt and Abigail Munn created Circus Bella in the spring of 2008 to respond to a common dream for accessible and high quality circus in the San Francisco Bay Area. Together, with band director/composer, Rob Reich, they assembled themselves into an ensemble company of 7-10 performing artists and a quintet of musicians.
Their mission is to be the preservation of classical circus for our current times by creating productions that are poignant, accessible, and regal. The company operates as a director-led ensemble that strives to uphold leadership practices that maintain business, creative, and interpersonal integrity.
Their outdoor show, adaptable for the stage, comes complete with a 32' ring tarp and ring curb, back drop, sound system and rigging. When appropriate and able, they expand their company with other performing artists. Their productions can be adapted to short 20-30 minute or full-length, 60-90 minute shows. Perfect for fairs, festivals, and fundraisers.
They can also provide individual and ensemble performers for special events!
