Viva Circus is a new generation physical theatre troupe, renowned for producing independent shows that give Asian artists opportunities and exposure of their talents. Its founder, Vivian Lea, who is trained in aerial acrobatics, theatre and multimedia production discovered upon her return from the U.K that preconceptions in Asia of circus is still confined and wanted to generate a movement with young visionary artists who dared to break out of the box. This new movement was launched as the Collision Arts Network in 2011 under the guidance and partnership of Jerry Snell, who has been at the forefront of the new circus creation in Canada. Both Lea and Snell share a common ethic to develop socially responsible projects, therefore an outreach program runs alongside all of Viva Circus’s projects to help raise funds for at risk children to get access to the arts.
