Audience members at Living Room Circus are invited to give written feedback to the performers, and there will also be an expert panel that will give personalized feedback after the show. (Performers can opt out of receiving feedback.)
We will select a variety of performers, from students brand-new to performing to seasoned professionals. Artistic risk can take a variety of forms; maybe for you it's performing on stage for the first time, working around an intimidating theme or exploring a vulnerable topic or choreographing on a new apparatus,. To be considered, please complete the application below and send in your act by June 19. Acts do not need to be fully polished, but should be safe to perform and have a guiding concept or objective.
We believe circus is multidisciplinary. Any physical performance art is welcome to apply. This could include physical theater, dance, and music.
