It’s happening again! Warehouse Circus is excited to launch, Circus for Life 2013!!

Warehouse Circus, Canberra’s very own youth circus, are bringing back the Circus for Life festival spanning three weeks of performances and interactive activities for people of all ages in a number of locations, celebrating the wonderful world of Circus Arts! This year Circus for Life has been planned as a fringe festival to the Woden Valley Festival.

Circus for Life uses circus to celebrate healthy, active lifestyles for people of all ages, and to promote circus as a unique arts industry, which offers social, physical and mental benefits for all people, whether circus novices or professional performers.

Whilst encouraging artists from all over Australia to come to Canberra, perform and share their skills and talent, the festival offers performance opportunities and other circus based activities to people of all ages. It also provides members of the community an opportunity to connect and engage with each other in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

There are some free events and tickets are on sale for the theatre shows now at circusforlife.org.au!
