What would circus be like if it was invented today? Hack Circus was a creative collective of artists, scientists, writers and performers committed to delightful and unsettling effects and experiences. Between 2013-2017, we produced a quarterly magazine, beautiful limited edition products, regular reality-bending events and more, always aiming to breathe sparkling life into impossible ideas. Buy the magazine from just £1.99 for a PDF copy of a back issue.

The Magazine

Can you be sure you're not just a brain in a jar hooked up to a computer? How can we communicate with the distant future? What's inside an ATM? Glossy quarterly Hack Circus tackles the serious questions. 

The Event

Every three months a themed show is held somewhere in the UK to launch the new issue. Entertaining and inspiring, and always tackling profound questions with humour and magic, a live Hack Circus is unforgettable.
