Audition call for circus performers

NoFit State Circus is looking for extraordinary, multi-talented circus performers to join our exciting outdoor project OPEN HOUSE.


Directed by Orit Azaz (Parklife, Barricade, Streets Alive), Open House is an immersive, ever-evolving, outdoor circus installation where everything and anything can happen. This is a unique circus theatre experience for public spaces, transforming city centres and inviting the passers by to run away with the circus for an hour, a day, a weekend. Open House combines high skill professional solo and ensemble performances with impromptu stunts, happenings, collaborations and training sessions.


We are specifically looking for ground-based performers (tight-wire, handstand, acro, hand to hand, trampoline, object manipulation) and cradle duos.

You will have a high level of skill in one or more circus disciplines; strong performing presence and warmth; genuine appetite for engaging with the public; and strong teaching abilities.

You will be happy to work as part of a professional ensemble, excited by new creative approaches to site responsive work and prepared to perform outdoors, on customised structures, in a variety of contexts and conditions!


Availability for auditions on 7th and 8th of April is essential.
The auditions will be held in Cardiff.

18th – 25th May: Rehearsals/Development in Cardiff
9th – 13th June: Rehearsals/Development week in Newbury
14th and 15th June: First performances in Newbury

Additional performances in August and September, dates TBC.

Please send CV, video links and a short letter on why you feel you are right for the project to ali@nofitstate.org
Deadline for application: 28th March
