Founded: 2008,Québec, Canada
Founder: Hugo Noel, Circus Artist, Creator and Mechanical Designer
Made from a dream that grew up in Hugo Noel's mind when he was in college in mechanical engineering, Québec City. CircusConcepts is the reunion of Hugo's knowledge in the circus world and his experience as a Drafter and Conceptor in mechanical engineering. Hugo started to acquire his knowledge at a very young age from his father, him being a recognized conceptualist of industrial mechanical machines.
Hugo started working in the field of engineering before even entering college. Combining his circus studies, his work as a Conceptor in a long running conception firm and his Academic Formation, Hugo figured he should combine this unique mix of knowledge. Being often deceived or frustrated by the lack of thinking put into many circus apparatuses, he promised himself to do something about it one day. After 4 years of touring around the world in different circuses, where he learned a lot more about circus and props, and contributed here and there to some more efficient designs, he officially started his company as a freelancer for supplying circus equipment in March 2008.
To date Hugo still continues touring around the world doing shows and giving workshops with his simple wheel solo act and his troupe, "The Catwall Acrobats". Whenever in Canada, or while on tour, he spends time designing new circus props and managing CircusConcepts, which is now a successful business that sells on thousands of items every year
Our goal is to improve the apparatuses used in circus and to make it easy and affordable for anyone to have access to quality circus products around the world while we also thrive to involve ourselves in the circus community.
