The Renegade – where the performers are the audience and the audience is the performers.
A Renegade stage is comparable to an open mic night but for circus folk (and ANYONE who wants to
join in on the fun!). The traditional definition of a renegade is an outlaw, a person who’s a law upon themselves, and at a Dublin Circus Project Renegade anyone who enters upon the stage is just that, and anything goes. As anyone can have a spot on the stage the entertainment comes in many forms.
The Renegade night is a mixture of great technical acts, clowning and comedy and people who are working on a new trick and want to show it to the world. However, the stage is not limited to high quality talent or even circus tricks. If you can light a match with your feet, take your top off while doing a handstand or have a talking cucumber for a stage partner, we want to see it! But please, no more people drinking candle wax…wait, what are we saying!? MORE candle wax drinking!
So whether it’s a performance you’ve been planning or a one trick wonder, if there’s a thing you can do, then the stage is yours 😉
Oh and did we mention, as a reward for entertaining the crowd, each person who takes to the stage is offered a free shot of Tequila or a tasty non-alcoholic treat, as well as a rapturous applause from the audience.
Dublin Circus Project hosts many of these Renegade nights throughout the year so keep your ears tuned for the next one!
