Ready to make some performance work?
Over 9 weeks this creative development will support emerging and professional performers to respond to the provocations of consumption and waste, based around found objects, rejected white goods, obsolete technology, and more. This facilitated creative development with Artistic Director Celia White will work towards a performance outcome in July.
Circus Lab will develop these incentives into a range of new short works for audiences that will be presented in a range of ways to suit the developing works, that could be immersive, installation style presentations, promenade elements, site specific contexts and artist forums, all to be discovered.

Here at Vulcana Women’s Circus, we run workshops for adults and kids and teens, and we develop community projects with all kinds of different communities, the focus always being on creativity and empowerment through circus. You can book us for gigs, workshops or hire our space at the Stores Studio, Brisbane Powerhouse.
Vulcana’s circus workshop and performance projects engage a broad range of community participants and work in partnership with arts and community organisations to create opportunities for cultural expression and community development. In a safe, playful space we encourage participants to be themselves with joy and push the boundaries of what is achievable as one or in a group.
