A huge priority for us is making circus accessible for everyone! 


We are pioneering a new creative development method that incorporates workshops with at-risk teenagers - including those that come from minority and low socioeconomic backgrounds from both rural and metropolitan Victoria.

Places we currently run workshops:

Art Attack in Clunes, Flying Fruit Fly Circus and The Drum as part of our ACCESS Tour.

Stonnington Youth Arts Initiative is a 6week performing arts program for young people aged 14-18 years, starting on Wednesday the 7th of April. 


This program includes weekly after school workshops, that incorporate theatre sports games, creative circus skills and analytical show development critiquing.

  • Play theatre sports games

  • Learn circus skills and physicality

  • Run around and pretend to be a duck (its all part of the process) 

  • Have conversations with diverse young people about everything from the arts to mental health to the environment

  • Make friends

  • Create an act

  • Perform on a real-life stage under lights in front of an audience!

  • And lots more!

No prior experience needed! Just come with an open mind, ready to learn! Our program is FREE but spaces are limited so make sure you register early so you don't miss out!

At the same time, we (Statera Circus) are creating our own show. And we want your help!

PLUS, at the end of the program our participants will get to perform at Chapel Off Chapel!


This program is taught by ex-students of The National Institute of Circus Arts. It's a great way to upskill before applying to an arts further education program like NICA or VCA!

Join us - It's FREE!
