Flow Circus

  • About the Artist:

    Flow Circus offers performances, workshops, and professional development to schools, libraries, camps, and other youth-focused organizations. Unplugged, challenging skills such as juggling, plate spinning, and flower stick twirling create a climate of playful learning. These highly interactive programs foster a culture of self-directed learning, perseverance, and success.

    Paul Miller, founder and primary performer of Flow Circus Kids, has been influenced by the traditions of American Vaudeville, silent film, and contemporary street theater. Paul’s unique blend of contagious energy, quirky characters, spectacular juggling, and comedy magic captivate audiences from the moment he steps on stage. These "kinetic storytelling" performances are engaging for all ages with plenty of audience participation. Since 1999, he has toured the U.S. performing his one man show at libraries, schools, and festivals. Recent credits include Disney Cruise Lines, Off-Broadway, USO, and TEDx Creative Coast.
