Audition Materials Due: Friday, August 7, 2020
In Both Programs We are Looking for Students with Skills in the Following Areas:
- Dance/Aerial Arts
- Clowning/Drama/Theatre Arts
An Atypical Audition for an Atypical Time
Kinetic Arts Center and other training facilities have been closed for months due to COVID-19. We are very aware that this has made it difficult to train and develop your circus skills and that you may not be as strong nor as flexible as you might otherwise be heading into this audition. As with everything at KAC, safety is our top priority – even with virtual auditions. Please work within your current ability to avoid injury.
We are looking for students that are committed to the rigorous training required to succeed in our Circus Spire and Circus Gilly – and who approach that training with enthusiasm and excitement! In our virtual audition process we will ask you to provide videos where you perform a predefined series of exercises to show us where you are today and an act with clear parameters where we want to see your creativity shine.
Please remember that every performer brings something unique to a circus ensemble. Some artists are strong, some are flexible, some have exceptional balance, some are graceful and some are outrageously funny. There are circus artists who have only one of these traits and some who have multiple strengths. We are most interested in seeing what you can do and are not concerned with the things you cannot do…yet.
