Pushing the boundaries of circus

Sidesault is about taking risks, leaping off the edge and creating a hub for innovation. Whether it is a unique and eccentric piece of clowning, a politically incisive sideshow or an interdisciplinary piece of physical theatre, our Sidesault program is supporting a new generation of circus artists - as well as many boundary-pushing established circus artists - to train and create new work. 

In 2017, we supported 120 extraordinary artists and companies with access to our space and delivered our Sidesault-in-Residence program. 

This was a series of creative collaborations supported by the Australia Council for the Arts with Circus Oz and companies Circus Tricktease, Gravity Dolls, Skye Gellmann Ensemble, Company 2, and Salvador Dinosaur.
