Gasworks Arts Park is thrilled to reveal that their live on-stage circus and physical theatre season Gasworks Circus Showdown will be returning to Gasworks in May 2014, and registrations for participants are now open!

Gasworks Circus Showdown offers a platform for circus professionals from across Australia to showcase their skills to audiences and industry figures alike, while being in the running to win a bundle of career development prizes. This competition based performance series will feature live judging and will consist of two semi final heats culminating in a Grand Final show, with an overall winner being crowned the Gasworks Circus Showdown Champion!

They’re looking for individuals or groups to submit a 10-15 min performance piece / vision of their act along with an online registration form. If shortlisted, acts will be invited to rehearse and perform at Gasworks in front of a live audience in the Gasworks Theatre. In 2014, all shortlisted participants will also receive a circus master class from world renowned, Brisbane based circus company Circa.

Do you know an individual or group who should be a part of Gasworks Circus Showdown? Entries for registration close on Monday 17 March 2014.
