Do you have a weird but wonderful routine, an unusual skill, or an act that is unlike anything Cirque has ever seen before?

Cirque du Soleil is coming to Australia in February to conduct auditions. And for the first time ever, the company has decided to extend their reach with a nationwide Auditions Roadshow promotion to search for Australia's most unique performing talent.

Auditions will be held in Perth (Tuesday 9 February), Brisbane (Thursday 11 February), Sydney (Friday 12 February) and Melbourne (Saturday 13 February) from 10am to 5pm in each location.

Throughout the year, Cirque du Soleil's casting team auditions the world's most talented circus artists, acrobats, sportspeople, singers, musicians and dancers.

For people who don't fit into one of those categories, the Australian Auditions Roadshow is the opportunity for everyday Australians to showcase their creative performance talent, and to get a taste of the audition process as part of an upcoming television program. Cirque du Soleil has appointed guest talent scouts to search for acts which are completely different, unique and even unusual.

A selection of candidates from each city will then be flown to Melbourne on Sunday 14 February 2016 to perform for the Cirque du Soleil auditions team.

Registration is essential. Applicants must apply for an audition time online by Monday 8 February at 5pm. Applying early is recommended as there is a limit to the number of people that can be registered. To register please visit: www.auditionsroadshow.com
