Circomara sailing circus was founded in 2012 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company specializes in Acrobatics and physical comedy. It is one of just a few companies in the world using a sailboat as a stage for a circus show.

The winter of 2012 was a harsh one in Sweden, that cold that Captain Henrik Gard decided to set sails in the following summer to search for warmer winds. With his circus crew they soon reached the fjords of Norway, crossed the North sea with its steep waves, fighting strong currents and gales in Scotland and somewhere there, decided, for that time at least, to give up the idea of heading farther south and instead make an unplanned stop in Ireland.

That was now soon two years ago and we are still here, busy doing circus.
