Circus Automatic began in 2012 in San Francisco with Tim Barsky and Fleeky Flanco evolving an earlier circus company Circus Flim Flam (founded 2010) into a more emergent, scalable and decentralized idea. Circus Automatic’s aim is to bring disparate audiences together for a show that achieves both highly structured performance, and at the same time an immersive environment more akin to the experiential reality of clubs, carnivals, and city streets. We dream of a Floating World. A temporary autonomous zone which the audience experiences, an imaginary reality which reflects the everyday in a way that illuminates the dark wood wandering of life.
