Matthias Goed

Professional circus performer

Read more


Matthias is a professional, second generation circus performer. He has been performing since well before he can remember. Being a native of Steyr, Austria, Matthias moved to New Zealand at a young age to tour with his family in one of New Zealands best known traditional circuses, Whirling Bros. This circus ceased business in 2006 and so his family decided to found their own circus, Circus Aotearoa.

Matthias spent his summers and holidays touring and performing with Circus Aotearoa along with numerous other performances in all manner of shows and festivals. He also finished as a semi-finalist in the ‘New Zealands Got Talent’ (2012) TV season while still at school.

After completing his high school education Matthias went on to spend one three month season in Iceland touring with Sirkus Islands, before returning to New Zealand to join a full seven month tour with Circus Aotearoa. Since then he has returned to Iceland for a full year to teach and train with Sirkus Islands and toured through Europe performing both independently and with circus companies and festivals.
