Waitlisted is a circus show made for youth, by youth. We address social issues relevant to us and other youth within our industry today. Collectively we made an observation early on that our experiences and opinions, on many issues, are often pushed aside and undervalued. We are not yet considered adults and taken seriously, but we are no longer children either. We live with a perpetual feeling of being waitlisted.

Through an anonymous survey, we gathered the voices and stories of young people in order to put youth and community at the forefront of this work; we aspire to let young people see their potential and use their voices to make an impact within their communities. We wish to validate their experience and let them know they are not alone.

This project received support from Flying Fruit Fly Circus
through Under Construction.
