Circus Weekend at the Underground Circus Studios

The third instalment in our evenings of “new and questionable circus”. We had an excellent turn out and an awesome show. Thanks to all our guest performers and our company members for putting on a great show. Check out the highlights video below.!

See Vancouver acrobats attempt to run their acts to randomly chosen pieces of music. Cash prizes are given for the acrobat who best performs their act to their new music. Prizes are also given for the best attempt with the worst music, and the audience favourite. A new tradition for this year…the contestants are encouraged to attempt to bribe the judges, with a prize given for “Best Bribe”.

If you would like to enter the competition email us at info@undergroundcircus.ca – all you need is a circus act. There are prizes for the following: $250 Best Performance Overall; $100 Best Try to the Worst Music; $100 Audience Favourite; $50 Best Bribe
