Take your event to the next level with the fascinating feats of Circus Momentus - It's a big deal!
Circus Momentus consists of Vern Coffey, Vanessa Vortex, and Fallon Burner, as well as guest artists. The three performers have trained at the San Francisco Circus Center as well the New England Center for Circus Arts, the two premiere circus schools in the United States. They have also received training internationally, at the National Institute of Circus Arts in Melbourne, Australia and La Tarumba, Peru's national circus school.
Circus Momentus is currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but they are found up and down the West Coast - North to Seattle, Olympia, Portland, & Eugene, and south to Los Angeles, San Diego, and points between. They also spend part of the year on the east coast, between Boston and New York City, to perform and teach.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 3 - 180 minutes
We provide 2 types of performance; many events will be best served by a combination of the two.
Stage shows, led by our Ringmaster, provide the full experience of a circus show, bringing the big top into your event!
Walkaround, or Ambient performance, provides performers in elaborate costumes, mingling with guests and showing off their skills in a closeup and interactive setting. This is especially suited to earlier on in the event, where the performers prove an ice breaker and help the guests get into the spirit of things.
We can work with you to put together a show for your venue. Contact us for details!
We have an on-staff lighting designer who is available as an add-on to any events you book us for. Not only is he able to create custom lighting for your event, he can provide the lights as well. For many clients we find that lighting can sometimes be an afterthought, and it requires them to search for yet another company to fulfill the needs of the event. Why not let us handle that for you? We know how to show off our amazing artists in their best light, and we can save you money by adding it on to what we're already providing!
