Daniel Zindler

Juggling, circus, and other acts of stupidity bound together by laughter and audience participation. Hilarious wholesome fun for the entire family. Daniel began his performing arts career busking on Granville Island at the tender young age of 14, where he realized getting paid for his antics was better than getting detentions for them. Busking (or street theatre), unlike traditional theatre, provides a unique venue for increased artistic risks and brutal audience feedback, as people simply walk away if they’re not interested in what they see. Currently Daniel is the artistic director of Vancouver Cabaret Circus, a non-profit presenting circus art at the Vancouver Playhouse and Queen Elizabeth, directing many of the company’s productions since 2011. When not travelling to either find the best new circus artists to present in Vancouver or performing at festivals and theatres himself Daniel can be found busking on weekends where it all began, Granville Island.
