Circus producer

  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a producer, working with circus artists to help develop and tour new work.

In the past year, I have worked closely with Circus Geeks & PanGottic to create Project_Vee, a new outdoor juggling duet on a spinning machine. Together we received commissioning support from Without Walls, Salisbury International Festival, Out There& Arts Council England. The show toured U.K. festivals this year and will continue into 2017.

I am currently a project manager at the National Centre for Circus Arts, managing a range of circus consultancy projects including Depart. Directed by Yaron Lifshitz (Circa) and performed in a deconcerated cemetery, Depart featured 30 dance and circus artists and a community choir of 200.

In 2015, I developed and managed Circus Geeks'  stategic tour of Beta Testing, which visited 25 venues, and had a month-long run at the Udderbelly Festival at the Southbank Centre.

I have a background in contemporary circus, graduating from the National Centre for Circus Arts in 2007. For six years, I created and toured acrobatic theatre work with So & So Circus Theatre, before deciding to help other small companies to develop their work and get it out to a wider audience.
