Book UsThe Westside CIRCUS Troupe offers opportunities for our talented artists to perform and to develop their skills. We often perform at Festivals, open days and other special events.We create dynamic performances and interactive workshops that will suit your event and budget. These can be drawn from our existing repertoire or devised especially to meet your needs.
Established in 2013, the Westside CIRCUS Troupe is an initiative that brings together a mix of professional performers, emerging artists and youth participants to collaborate on the creation of dynamic performances. The troupe currently has many shows in repertoire, and has appeared at significant artistic and community events, including the Coburg Carnivale, The Arty Farty Festival, The Ride of the Valkyries Parade at Federation Square and a special Pyjama Party roving event for Sleep Out at the G. In 2014 the Troupe was invited to perform at the National Youth Circus Festival in Bathurst, Catapult, and continues to be in high demand.
Our shows range from theatrical devised pieces to roving, ensemble work. We generate courageous and engaging shows by encouraging our young performers to express themselves creatively and respond imaginatively to challenges. Our devised shows have included appearances at the Coburg Carnivale, where we interacted with Street Furniture acrobatically and comically, The Arty Farty Festival where we participated in a parade themed on “the Land of the Giants”, The Ride of the Valkyries Parade at Federation Square, where we performed as Daemons from Hell, and a special Pyjama Party roving event for Sleep Out at the G.
