Circus is an all-encompassing art form that brings together an incredibly diverse array of the creative arts to bring joy and laughter from an uncommon source to as many people as possible.

Le Vorris & Vox is the University of Chicago’s very own circus network and troupe! Le Vorris & Vox strives to bring the incredible joys of the circus arts to anyone and everyone on campus. The members of Le Vorris & Vox work together to learn and train in stilt-walking, partner acrobatics and tumbling, clowning, burlesque, fire manipulation, unicycling, and aerials. We also welcome those who are more interested in the technical aspects of circus: mask and puppet makers, stage designers, writers, actors, dancers, musicians, improvers, jesters, etc. Le Vorris & Vox puts on two shows a year, one in Winter, and a Spring show in Rockefeller Chapel. 

Le Vorris & Vox works by bringing people together, harnessing the powers of peer-teaching and skill-sharing, as well the exciting wonders of show-development and performance, in an environment that is both physically and mentally fulfilling.

All levels of interest and skill are welcome! For more information, visit vox.uchicago.edu.
