Welcome to our Company

At BrainFools, we believe in the transformative power of contemporary circus arts to connect, inspire, and engage. Founded in 2021 by a dynamic duo, Finn and Toffy, BrainFools has rapidly evolved into a beacon of innovative and socially-aware performance art.

Our Vision

Our vision is to redefine the realms of circus and performance art, making them not just spectacles of skill and beauty but also powerful mediums for social commentary and community engagement. We are dedicated to creating immersive experiences that resonate deeply with diverse audiences, transcending boundaries and sparking conversations.

From the streets of London to the rural heartlands of the UK, we bring stories to life through a mesmerizing blend of acrobatics, dance, and theater. Each performance is a journey – an exploration of themes that matter, from the struggles of marginalized groups to the joys of human connection.

Welcome to our world. Welcome to BrainFools
