About the Festival
The third festival of innovative and experimental Circus work at The Melba Spiegeltent, Sidesault at the Melba 7-17 November 2019.
We will be presenting the next round of cutting edge new circus works or adaptations of existing works that explore the possibilities of circus as an art form and engage with contemporary cultural trends; works that spark conversation and debate, as well as celebrate the positives, imagine the possibilities and break some rules!
We are thrilled that Sidesault at The Melba was been nominated for a Green Room Award for Innovation in Curatorial Contribution & Programing in the Contemporary and Experimental Performance category.
Previous participants have gone on to tour nationally and internationally and win many awards after their premiere as part of Sidesault at The Melba.
