Quotes & Highlights
“Adkins hasn’t reinvented juggling or clowning, he’s just made them more interesting to watch.” —Daily Gazette (New York)
“A dexterous clown walks a daffy line.” —New York Times
Jamie Adkins began his career at the age of 13 in San Diego, where he delighted passers-by as a street performer. Later, in San Francisco, he joined the Pickle Family Circus. Then this eclectic clown, juggler, balancing artist and one-hundred percent poet joined Montréal’s Cirque Éloize. With his numerous talents and years of experience, this multidisciplinary acrobat was soon an integral member of the Cirque Éloize family of artists, making an invaluable contribution of the show Excentricus. In over 500 of this production, Jamie distinguished himself with his unique style that faithfully and humorously conveyed the essence of the ordinary man.
Jamie again teamed up with Cirque Éloize to produce Typo, a show of his own creation, which toured the world giving more than 200 performances over 2 years. He won the admiration of critics and adoration of the circus-going public.
Jamie Adkins continues to forge ahead on his career path, always seeking new ways to develop his artistry. For this reason, he is delighted to present his newest creation Circus INcognitus. More than ever before, Jamie shows his audiences, in his own unique way, the full range of his talents. He has taken his performance far beyond the bounds of a single role and created an artistic event that springs from his own inner world.
