Circus & Physical Theatre (CaPT)

Theatre Network Australia (TNA) has taken on some of the services that ACAPTA used to provide to the Circus and Physical Theatre sector including: research, networking, insurance, professional development, advocacy, business advice, international engagement, and resources. TNA has also established a CaPT Advisory Group.



Theatre Network Australia’s CaPT Strategy was rolled out in 2017, following on from two Sector Reviews commissioned by Creative Victoria and undertaken by Andrew Bleby and Associates. It will be reviewed and revised for 2021 and beyond.

Previously, the Australian Circus & Physical Theatre Association (ACAPTA) was the peak body and service organisation for the growing contemporary circus and physical theatre sector between 2004 – 2017, following a rich history of development of the sector.
