The Circus of Knowledge.

Come one, come all! This is a space encouraging everyone to use all of their senses to play, dance, make music, and experience the world. At this particular circus, performers, musicians, academics, scientists, acrobats - and sometimes robots and clowns - transform science into art thereby creating sensory and engaging experiences!

Today’s world is full of social global challenges, including the digital revolution, climate disasters, educational inequality, and poverty. The resulting changes have infiltrated our everyday lives, at times turning our work environment and the way we co-exist on its head.


The Circus of Knowledge is all about open dialog and knowledge transfer between academia, science, and society and is developments and advancements. By means of art, the Circus aims to attract people from different age groups to engage and address scientific and academic topics as well as actively take part and be involved in collaborative artistic projects.
