CircaSEA is Southern Edge Arts’ very own performance group, bringing together talented and advanced members of SEA from around the Great Southern. CircaSEA was formed in 2008 by a group of young performers eager to share their passion and abilities with the world. Since then they have travelled, trained and performed far and wide including Rockingham, Broome and Karridale as well as of course Albany & Denmark.
