Unpolished Gems

Unpolished Gems is an opportunity for newer performers to get more experience in front of an audience and for seasoned performers to take risks and try new things. It’s a great place to present work that may not fit into other formats. Our intention is to bring people together to create and strengthen connections in the Seattle area circus community

Everyone is invited to perform and almost any circus or circus-related art is welcome! In the past we’ve had jugglers, magicians, musicians, clowns, belly dancers, and a thing or two we can hardly describe. This time around, in addition to our regular acts we’re going to try something a little different:

The Lightning round!
Don’t want to do a whole act but still want to get in for free? Show us one thing. Whatever you like. Tell a joke, do a juggling trick, stand on your hands, sing a snippet of a song. Try to make it under 60 seconds.

Tickets are $5 presale, $10 at the door, and free for participants in the lightning round. If you want to be in the lightning round and reserve a seat, choose “pay at the door” and send a message to
