Circus takes a central position in Melbourne Festival’s 2014 program. To help kick things off on opening weekend, Westside Circus brings its vibrant energy to MPavilion for two workshops full of physical play. You can try a new skill, build on skills you already have or watch Westside’s experienced trainers—and talented Youth Troupe—demonstrate and perform. Everyone’s welcome, but if you’re under six you need to bring a grown-up. Saturday’s workshop starts at 1pm.
