Company Afterclap is a Stockholm based contemporary circus company founded in 2019 by two Finnish circus artists Nelli Kujansivu and Aaron Hakala. They met in Stockholm when they became classmates in the renowned Stockholm University of the Arts´ Circus Program, from which they graduated as Bachelors of Fine Arts in Circus in 2016.

They have since worked with contemporary circus companies such as Cirkus Cirkör, Cirque du Soleil, Galapiat Cirque and Circus Monti. After many years of touring the world separately they decided to combine their forces and so Company Afterclap was born.



Face First was formed from the desire of it’s hard working members to establish a space for themselves to create freely and fly on their own. The name evokes the risk that define their lives as circus artists. It also speaks to their wish to highlight the personality of the body on stage, using the art of acrobatics as a path to authenticity.

After years of working in their own field, the members of Face First are adding a new voice to the circus field by producing their own touring productions and customized events. 



Kompani Giraff creates visual and unique circus performances with a foundation of poetic narrative and a passion for magic in everyday life situations.

With this foundation we seek to explore new ground in contemporary circus and make use of our own different experiences in the performing arts to truly create interdisciplinary works of art. 



Emil Dahl has spent the last five years researching on and practicing ring juggling in its most condensed form: balancing rings in new shapes with the foundational principle of keeping things simple and minimalistic (and functional).

Det får bära eller brista


Circus By Me creates contemporary circus with a special focus on acrobatics, crossing various art forms such as contact improvisation, modern dance, ceramics and theater. It employs culture as a means for building a better world. In drawing its themes from the act of carrying and from physical tasks, DET FÅR BÄRA ELLER BRISTA uses partner acrobatics as an expressive tool. On stage the team works in duos, trios, and as a collective to perform static and dynamic acrobatics.
