Need time and rehearsal space to work your new Fringe show? Have an idea you want to play with? Ready to expand your performance practice? This is the residency for you! 

Women’s Circus Artist Residency Program ‘A Room of One’s Own’ offers women, trans and non-binary artists working in circus/performance/physical theatre up to 2-weeks access to the Drill Hall, our training and rehearsal space in West Footscray for free! This residency is an opportunity for artists to explore, refine, re-develop, rehearse their work in a supportive, fully-equipped space.

Please note, the applicant must be a current Women’s Circus member to access the benefits of a free rehearsal space at Drill Hall. While not everyone in your crew needs to be a member (only the applicant) we recommend checking out the great membership benefits (includes heavily discounted rehearsal space hire, free open training, and costume loans)! Annual Memberships directly support costs associated with our artist development programs.

Head to our membership page to become a member and for more info.


Women’s Circus welcomes all people to our membership and training program who identify as women, trans and non-binary.


All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who identify as women, trans and non binary can access our training programs and membership free of charge. To discuss your enrolment please email our Training Manager.
