Message to CircusTalk members:

Dear Valued CircusTalk member:

We’re thrilled to share some exciting news that’s set to unfold in the coming months.
After seven incredible years since our launch, CircusTalk is undergoing a transformation. We’re changing our name and expanding our horizons to embark on a new journey.

Introducing StageLync!

Through a strategic partnership with the renowned global entertainment media site, TheaterArtLife, we’re uniting our services under a new banner, StageLync. This move not only broadens our scope but also enhances our members’ visibility within the wider performing arts community, fostering deeper connections and opportunities.

StageLync embodies our enduring commitment to delivering outstanding service and groundbreaking solutions. While our name is changing, our core values and dedication to serving you remain steadfast. This rebrand aligns perfectly with our vision and underscores our joint venture’s expanded reach and services.

Seven years into our mission

We first set out with a mission to create an equitable platform where artists, crew, and creators could thrive. Today, our community boasts 37,000 individuals and companies working in the field. CircusTalk has evolved into a comprehensive media and career development hub, spotlighting not just circus arts but also a variety of performing arts disciplines. As the performing arts have become increasingly multidisciplinary, so too has CircusTalk’s membership diversified, with a growth in the number of dancers, singers, and actors joining our talent database.

At CircusTalk, we firmly believe in the transformative power of circus arts within the broader performing arts realm. Our vision from seven years ago -that of circus as a recognized art form driving innovation and re-imagination in the performing arts- remains as vibrant as ever.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to you for being an integral part of this journey. StageLync represents the next chapter, unlocking even greater opportunities on a grander stage within the performing arts arena.

By partnering with TheaterArtLife under the new brand, StageLync, we will not only engage with the industry but we will also connect with audiences worldwide. While

provides an enhanced experience and expanded networking opportunities for our current and prospective professional members,

our audience-facing platform, will serve as an unmatched resource for audiences seeking information about shows and their creators.
