I began facilitating circus workshops in 2018 at an SEN camp, and then continued looking at the skills involved in equipment-based circus. However, in 2021 I was involved in a project which really opened my eyes to how circus could be taught, and the effect it could have on young people and communities. This led to me getting DYCP Arts Council funding to explore an accessible contemporary circus practice with a focus on storytelling. I have since choreographed circus routines for performance, co-created circus performances with young people, performed as a jester and ran many workshops. I am available for a wide range of bespoke circus workshops and projects.
I work with organisations to create circus workshops, courses and performances. Beneath are some examples of what I can offer:
Circus Skills Workshop
I run equipment-based circus skills workshops for beginner to intermediate. These are great for team building or just for fun!
These workshops look at circus and theatre combined, and the focus will be more heavily on storytelling rather than skill.
I can be booked for circus-based performance, or as a facilitator for circus performance.
Examples of previous circus projects I have been involved with:
CircusMASH: I work for CircusMASH as a ground skills teacher. I have also run workshops in schools and for corporations, and I worked a jester for them at Warwick Castle.
Greece: I did an Erasmus programme in Greece with participants from 5 countries in Europe. We devised and created a performance for the public in a week.
The Play House: I ran circus and theatre workshops in a primary school to create a performance.
Gazebo: The Mad Hatter: I choreographed a circus sequence for a performance by Gazebo.
RoguePlay: I performed a circus performance in their scratch night, and I have run circus workshops for schools.
