• Circus Artists wanted for Road Show, a Kensington/Chelsea Olympic Street Party

    18 March 2012 Jobs & Opportunities

    A commission from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics, Road Show will create a 'landscape of wonder' on Exhibition Road, the wide long street running south from Kensington Gardens which leads to the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, and the Royal Albert Hall.

    Road Show will be performed by The Exhibitionists, an ensemble of international performers created specially for the event, and the organisers (Di Robson Events and Arts Management) are currently looking for performers to join the company and work under the direction of Sue Broadway (formerly a member of Circus Oz and Ra Ra Zoo, these days the director of some very large-scale spectacles) and aerial specialist Phil Hayes.

    They are looking for performers with any of the following skills: acrobatics (solo and/or partner-based); acrobalance, handstands; Chinese pole; aerial (single-point, harness, web, tissu, hoop); dance (street dance, breakdance, popping, contemporary); parkour, power skips. All applicants will need a general willingness to work as part of an ensemble in an outdoor environment, and must be recent graduates who have 'graduated from a recognised training organisation no more than 3 years ago'.

    Initial auditions for the project will take place in London 1 & 2 April, with recalls 15 April 2012. Rehearsals will be 2-27 July, with performances daily during the period 28 July – 5 August 2012.
