Forget So You Think You Can Dance. Circus performance is where it’s all at, and Gasworks is where all the circus perform…er…ing? is at.

The Gasworks Circus Showdown is an acclaimed circus and physical theatre competition, and this year it will be held from May 15-18 at the Gasworks Theatre.

It’s not just the glory of being the best circus performers have to look forward to. The prizes have been announced, and the champions will win a specifically tailored professional development package worth over $6,000 (including a photography session, a professional publicity campaign, rehearsal time in the Gasworks Theatre, a social media strategy consultation, and sweet, sweet cash from the Gasworks Foundation.

Runners up will receive the ‘Adelaide Fringe Festival Performance Experience’, which includes free registration to the Adelaide Fringe Festival, a free marketing session at Gasworks, and some cash!

If you’re an individual circus performer or belong to a circus group of any kind, you’re who they’re looking for. Gasworks is calling for you to submit a 10-15 minute performance piece or vision of your act and fill out the online registration form before March 18th.

Head to if you’re keen!
