Cyr wheel, handbalance, pole or Chinese pole act - Forbidden Nights

Forbidden Nights are currently seeking new cast members to join the Forbidden Family, with short term and long-term contracts available.

Forbidden Nights is UK’s leading male variety/sexy circus and prides itself on producing a fun high-energy, full production show with exceptional talent.

We are looking for a Cyr wheel, handbalance, pole or Chinese pole act who will be required to do a solo routine and 4 or 5 choreographed routines in the show. You could be a seasoned professional or this could be your first exciting opportunity to put your skill set live on a stage – either way we would love to hear from you.

Current show schedule

We operate a 90 date UK tour in which pick-up and drop-off are in London. All travel and accommodation whilst touring is covered by the company. We also have our London Residency show every Saturday night in Clapham.

We offer paid rehearsals at £10ph and offer a show fee of £150-£180 depending on experience which has progression based on longevity with the show. If you are a self-employed act not looking to take advantage of the regular/consistent work but would consider joining our books for when we need swing cover, corporate opportunities or when we have bigger shows (which require more acts), our swing fee is £200-£250.

Most importantly we strive to hire a great team on and off stage, attitude, positivity and excitement is the atmosphere we create!

We are very lucky that our cast turnover rate is very minimal and on average our acts stay with the show for 3+ years.
