Call Out for new circus work!

VOLT is one of the only Scratch Nights in the UK completely dedicated to circus. Launched in 2013 at Circomedia in Bristol held bi-annually for a growing loyal audience of circus lovers, makers and students.
Each VOLT night we present 4-5 pieces of early and low-tech circus work. The focus of this scratch night is dialogue and experiment, we are excited about the beginnings and possibilities of new work & sharing that with an audience for the first time.
We host all kinds of circus; from juggling, rope and clowning as well as Russian bar, teeterboard & swinging hoop.

The next VOLT is 23rd of September 2016 at 7.30pm at Circomedia Portland Square.

An invaluable experience for all involved. create, attend and ensure this is an ongoing event” – Steven Allen (Previous VOLT Artist)

VOLT is a great opportunity to realise ideas in a physical space, test them out with an engaged and intrigued audience and discuss ways of progressing the boundaries of our artforms” – Chez Dunford (Previous VOLT Artist)
