About

Bend The Air

Bend The Air is the next evolution of the modern circus industry. It presents an annual, multi-level specialty, aerial and acrobatics arts competition developed to showcase the talent of emerging young artists.

 

Established in 2020, Bend The Air puts a modern spin on the traditional circus experience with a melting pot of acts ranging from acrobatics solos, groups and aerial silks and lyra to our ‘circus freaks’ and open aerial categories providing an element of individuality, artistic expression and entertainment value. The competition invites performers from all across Australia to compete and thrive within an environment of like-minded young artists with a diversity of backgrounds and skillsets. Our aim is to deliver the gift of performance to budding young artists on their journey to professional careers in circus arts and to build connections among the community.
