Aerial Arts Youth Company


HighJinx is an Auckland-based youth company (ages 12 - 18) specialising in aerial performance - static trapeze, aerial hoop, silks, hammock – and ground-based acrobatics, theatre and dance. The company specialises in devising and performing aerial works created for and by its members, their mission “to make work that in innovative, truthful and brave” with a focus on creative expression and developing the young member’s toolbox of creative and physical skills to be confident creators and performers. Performance highlights have included Tempo Dance Festival, Auckland Zoo and New Zealand's Got Talent. Directed by Carlene and Eve Gordon, its home was at TAPAC 2011-2014 and moved to The Dust Palace 2014. Their shows have included “No Strings Attached” (2011); “Fingerprints” (2013); “Flight Lab” (2016). 

HighJinx is for young people who want to dedicate their time to development as a creator and performer of circus arts.
