Auditions and Submissions


PERFORMANCE: November 9th


Seeking performers and creators! Applications are open for the Fall 2019 edition of Living Room Circus, our quarterly performance showcase for performing artists of all disciplines, focused around the themes of risk, innovation and experimentation. This is a great opportunity to explore a piece that doesn’t fit within mainstream performance opportunities, try out new ideas in front of an audience or experiment with a new challenge.

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 October 1st. Acts do not need to be fully polished, but should be safe to perform and have a guiding concept or objective.

Artists and performers new to Circus Project are encouraged to apply! Please take note of our Learning Community Agreements. While designed with our classes in mind, they apply to all events in our space.

Email with any questions.

This show will be curated by Nelda Reyes, Circus Project Board Member, actor, director and cultural consultant. Priority will be given to diverse artist representation on stage, act experimentation and self-identified personal risk taking.
