Cirque Bijou are currently looking for acts to appear on the Circus Stage at the immense multi-artform Bristol Harbour Festival over the weekend of 19 & 20 July 2014.
Set-up outdoors in the natural amphitheatre of Castle Park, the Circus Stage hosts local, national and international acts that are 'engaging, fun, and family friendly'. Artists typically perform two to three times a day, both days. Cirque Bijou have a large stage with an aerial rig and 'the capacity for unusual technical requirements' – just ask them for details.
Alongside circus and street acts, Bijou are also looking for comperes ('successes in the past have been street theatre artists and comedians with large characters, stamina and unfailing enthusiasm!'). The Circus Stage runs for six hours per day over two days; duos work well in maintaining the energy and covering the time.
To apply send CVs, videos and pictures along with your basic tech requirements and an indication of your fee to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 May 2014.
