Who we are

Cirque Bijou like to mix things up. From stunning artistic creations for rock concerts to seamlessly produced large scale shows in community recreation grounds, we seek out the new, unusual and surprising, drawing on the thousands of relationships we have built across the live entertainment, theatre and production industries since 1999. To this breadth of experience and formidable network we add passion, creativity and sky-high production values.

  • THE TEAM

    Julian Bracey - Creative Director

    Julian obtained a degree in three dimensional design before travelling the world with a successful one man street show. Somewhere along the way he developed an unhealthy fascination of fire, pyrotechnics and circus. Julian is now co-director of Cirque Bijou.

    Howie is our inhouse video wizard, creating live-mixed backdrops, beautiful digital accompaniments to our live shows and his speciality 3D video mapping which he projects straight onto our Project 3Sixty set. He's good with websites and stuff like that, and throws a mean yoyo too.
