House of Circus is a Circus Company and Drag house. 
Creating, producing and performing shows, acts and site-specific performances. It was founded by Germain Charlat and Nick van der Heyden.

Versatile, adaptable and creative, they use their humour and wit to highlight their technical circus skills, using also theatre and dance, as a full spectrum to experiment with. By creating and decorating characters, their goal is to make Drag accessible to everyone, regardless gender or age.

Entertainment, glitter, circus skills and surprises. I really enjoyed watching the "House of Circus"!

We traveled through the whole spectrum of emotions. Surprising, hilarious and touching! You guys are so fierce!

Very avant garde, never seen such an interesting concept.

Thanks for this great discovery

Sitting somewhere between magic and cheese, Nick and Germain's work transports you a smokey night club where anything can happen. In-your-face kind of characters mixed with virtuosity and a healthy portion of comedy make you wonder if it's so wrong, why does it feel so right? House of circus strives to engage with their audience, creating an atmosphere where one can let go, if they're in town you don't want to miss it!
