Hold Fast is a new circus show created and directed by Ellie Dubois, with original music by Sarah Hayes. The show is being made with an all-female cast consisting of a live band of Scottish folk musicians and four circus performers. It’s being made in response to the lack of work that tours to rural areas and the Highlands where Ellie lives. The show will be developed in Glasgow and the Highlands in May 2023 before touring village halls around the Strathspey area of the Highlands in September.

We are looking for a performer for the show with skills in any of the following: Cyr Wheel, Acrobatics, Acrobalance, Handbalancing, Hula hooping, Contortion. You need to be comfortable devising and happy working in a team.
