Eric Bates

Circus Artist. Visual Storyteller. Adventurer.


My life is a celebration of movement. Whether it's performing with my circus company, Barcode, or writing about the adventures I've taken on my blog Beautiful Problems, I love exploring the limits of human potential and hope to inspire others to do the same through my performances and writing. 

If you want to reach out to say hi, ask a question, or discuss a potential performance or collaboration, please do. I'd love to hear from you.
