Sawdust, circus with sparkle

An evening of circus and song with a sprinkle of magic.

Sawdust showcases the spectacular and vibrant talents from the Whitireia Performing Arts (Dance) [Circus] programme.

This is a show for all the family, featuring live music, mind bending acrobatics, dance, humour and magic. Wire walkers, acrobats and trapeze artists mashed with Motown, Jazz, and Soul…..the beautiful, the wonderful and the wild. . .

The show is brought to you by award winning circus director Deborah Pope and Cirque du Soleil’s Rosalie Ducharme.
