Between Worlds, a new circus and live music extravaganza
Welcome to Silver Circle Productions and West City Concert Band’s second full length circus and live music extravaganza!
“Between Worlds” is a wondrous tale of one woman’s brave journey into a dark, mysterious world to rescue her kidnapped lover. Loosely based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, it is a story of finding strength in the most unexpected of places, told through a cast of talented acrobats and dancers with accompaniment of a live concert band.
After their sell out show Dance Carnivale in 2014, Silver Circle Productions, Auckland’s largest community circus, and the multi-award winning West City Concert Band come together again to bring you a show of high flying acrobatics, death defying stunts, exquisite dancers and exceptional music that will appeal to all ages.

Thanks to all who joined us at Dystopian Dreams
It’s back to our normal lives this week after a fantastic run of our latest Silver Circle production, Dystopian Dreams. Everything went smoothly, no bones were broken and our audience have been giving us rave reviews, so a successful show all round. A couple of great write-ups have been appearing in the press, including this one from The Big Idea. A full house on Friday grew to an overflowing theatre on Saturday – leading into a hectic pack down and crazy clothes-swapping cast party! Thanks to all who came to support us, we couldn’t do it without you. Look out for our upcoming Cabaret Night to get your next Silver Circle fix!
