Who We Are
Spider Silks is unique, rare, strong and beautiful. Like this elusive fabric, the Spider Silks Circus creates surreal and spectacular narrative modern circus performance.

The Spider Silk Circus is the professional performing branch of the Circus Academy of Tucson. We provide professional circus entertainment from a single performer to add icing to your wedding or event to large scale performance that will make your festival or city street a surreal and high impact experience that will never be forgotten.

Below is an archive of some our past large-scale and custom work, designed and directed by Katherine Tesch. These can be reproduced or we can create something special just for your event. Scroll down for our "a la carte" event offerings.  These offerings include aerial silks, trapeze, lyra, sling, rope, invented apparatus and more. We also have jugglers, poi spinners, stilt walkers, globe walkers, unicyclers, acrobats and contortionists. Our portable aerial rigs allow us to perform in a variety of locations.
