Circus and Performance Artists Call Out!

Are you a developing acrobat, emerging contortionist, or talented tissu twirler? Are you a performance artist looking for your next big show? If so, then you need to know about Gasworks Arts Parks’ Circus Showdown! It’s the only professional development opportunity for circus performers that gives artists a chance to learn, to perform in public, and be in with a chance to win BIG prizes!

If you’re passionate about your next step as a circus professional then apply now. We want to see your 10-15-minute act, and share this with our supportive Gasworks’ home crowd.

You can be a solo artist, a duo, or an ensemble.

Fill in an application form to let us know you’re interested and tell us about your style. If shortlisted, then you’ll have access to our rehearsal space and take part in our 2 Heats in August 2017. You’ll perform in front of a supportive crowd, and industry judges. They’ll vote for the best acts which will go through to our Grand Finale. Silver prize winners get a professional development package and a cash sum, Overall Winners receive a generous cash price, and a comprehensive development package including a photography portfolio and a marketing workshop.

If you’re going to be in the Circus, you need to be in Circus Showdown. Application close on 30th May 2017. Apply here.
