The Circus Studio was founded in November 2016 by the Dutch circus company Tall Tales Acrobatics. The entire project is driven by the local circus community. We try to keep prices as low as possible and in return we ask regular users to contribute by helping with maintenance, performances and other jobs. We try our best to make a meaningful contribution to the local area by offering circus classes for youth and adults (in partnership with Circus Rotjeknor and CirQ10), organizing open stages and by hosting free or low cost performances and try-outs of new circus shows.

The Circus Studio is located in the Odeon building which offers dance, theatre, crossfit, MMA and many other classes to the people of ‘the Old West’ (the area in Rotterdam where the studio is located).


The Circus Studio offers the opportunity to show new work to fellow circus artists and the local community. Also, every two months an open stage is organised in the Studio space. If you would like to perform please send an e-mail to:
