Acts and Shows
CK’s performances are extraordinary displays of contemporary circus: breath-taking acts and creative and effortless ensemble work. Our performances elevate events by capturing the hearts and minds of audiences and taking them on an enthralling journey. We can present our existing beautiful and dynamic acts and shows or design and choreograph custom-made or themed work.
There are two versions available of all current shows: one involving aerial skills (harness, hoop, silks), and the other is floor-based and requires no rigging. All shows are set against unique soundscape inspired by traditional Nepali and international music.

Ground or aerial contemporary circus: breath taking skills and atmosphere
The Circus Show
Swatantrata explores the theme of freedom through physical circus specialties and exceptional choreography.
Saturate is the creative combination of circus acts and technology – a dramatic visual experience! This show is increasingly in demand for corporate events and perfect for experiential marketing.
Swagatam, described by the press as ‘astounding’, is an extraordinary piece of contemporary circus. Performed to standing ovations at the world-famous Glastonbury Festival in the UK, this ensemble work is hauntingly beautiful. It was uniquely co-created by the performers, several visiting directors and on a circus retreat in Norway. The piece draws on the performers’ stories and features the colourful and sometimes comical aspects of Nepal, abstractly captured through a rich and diverse physical landscape alongside sounds captured from the real-life happenings of Kathmandu. This piece has also been performed with Nepal’s celebrated band, Katumba.
There are two versions available of all shows:
one incorporates aerial skills (harness, hoop, silks), the other is floor based, requiring no rigging.
Full shows with aerial: 45 minutes
Ground based show: 30 minutes
Length of performance: 10 minutes to 1 hour.
[Nb. aerial show requires load bearing rigging points and a rigger. Circus Kathmandu will provide a rigger]
