Cirque du Soleil Auditions Roadshow

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

Terrestrial | State Theatre Company South Australia

Terrestrial’s author (Fleur Kilpatrick) says in the programme notes that she dedicated her play to lonely girls, bored boys, to quiet towns and “to a landscape that looks like Mars”. She adds ”landscape informs how our trauma, confusion, illness or fear manifests itself”. It does in this play.

Hungry Ghosts | Melbourne Theatre Company

Described as a post traumatic play, Hungary Ghosts is both complex and challenging. While conscious in its use of multiple characters and threads, commentary on national themes does give echo to a central, more personal narrative around culture, loss, belonging, patriotism and identity.

Almost Face To Face | Stephen House

It's difficult to determine who the real star is in this piece; the exquisite writing, or the equally perfect performance. That both are the work of the same person... truly impressive stuff.

Les Misérables | The South Coast Choral and Arts Society

This is an emotional play with not too many dry eyes at times, but if a play and its performers can move you, make you laugh, make you cry, make you think, then a good job has been done.

Good Cook. Friendly. Clean. | Griffin Theatre Company

It might go down a treat as a Nanny's business card, but it seems to have little currency for Tara Marice's character, Sandra in Brooke Robinson's Good Cook. Friendly. Clean.
