Our Level Up Circus Academy is excited to present our vision and imagination of ECLIPSE with this year’s Fremantle festival: 10 Nights in Port.
Through explorations of unity and diversity, balance and disharmony, trust and compromise, these young artists will ask you to consider our humanity and our fragility and invite you to ponder the question: “what can we build and create together?”
Conceived in WA by MAXIMA Circus’ Sally Richardson, this work’s first presentation was created in 2022 with Australia’s National Institute of Circus Art (NICA’s) students. In 2023, with NICA’s support we are excited to be bringing Sally’s concept back to WA to develop the unique youth voice of this work. Led by an extraordinary team of creatives in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, this is the beginning of a ‘national’ production that will spend the next few years growing and developing across Australia.
We invite you to begin a journey from here and into these young people’s future.

CircusWA acknowledges the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation are the spiritual and cultural birdiyangara (custodians) of the land upon which we train, create and perform.
Fremantle is Walyalup, sited on the banks of the Derbal Yerrigan. We recognise this land was never ceded and acknowledge our first people’s continuing connection to boodja (land), kayep (waters) and Noongar culture.
We pay respect to our Elders past and present.
