With the arrival of our new artistic director Zebastian Hunter we have embarked once again on creating a professional arm of the company. This performance program is a new and exciting offering for Circus Monoxide and is inspired by the core values of the company. Our new portfolio of shows are being produced by Linda Catalano’s company Quietriot.
It has been a very busy year so far. We were very fortunate to receive funding from CreateNSW’s Restart and Recovery initiative, CIty of Sydney: CBD Activation Grant and CreateNSW Play the City Grant. These funds were channeled towards the development of a new 35-minute performance created in both our Fairy Meadow facility and at Merrigong Theatre Company. The work entitled “The Construct” was created by our new artistic director and 8 diverse circus performers: Mashsa Terentieva, Will Meager, Johnny Brown, Roya-the-Destroya, Emma Lian Goh, Adam Malone, and our very own circus trainer’s Blake Wilson and Louise Clark. The show was performed from the 26-28th of February at Darling Harbour.
The company has recently received funding from CreateNSW Play the City Round Two and will be performing a new show on our new Cube apparatus in Sydney in September. More information is soon to come.
Circus Monoxide was also successful in receiving funding from the Federal Government’s Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) initiative. Over the next two years Axis Productions will develop a new portfolio of shows and we are excited to share our progress as these new performances take shape.
