Are you a producer interested in DJing? Or are you a DJ interested in producing?

Collaborate with other musicians to create the live soundtrack for a brand new show called Throwdown by the Roundhouse Street Circus Collective, as part of CircusFest 2018.

About Throwdown:

Throw your best moves down on the floor and up in the air

Throwdown is an energetic, in-your-face-encounter, bursting with the individual style and personality of 20 young circus artists and hip hop dancers. Switch up the worlds of hip hop, contemporary circus and live music in this brand new studio performance for an up close audience.

The Roundhouse Street Circus Collective brings together bold young circus artists and street dancers aged 16-25 with a drive to train, collaborate, produce and present their own work.

Directed by Simple Cypher – a new company built through the foundations of hip hop and circus.

  • Perform live in front of an audience with the Roundhouse Street Circus Collective on 12, 13 and 14 April in the Roundhouse’s Sackler Space.
