I trained as a theatre practitioner specialising in physical theatre, touring with small scale children’s theatre companies until I ran away with the circus to Sydney Australia to train in clown and aerial disciplines.

 

On returning to the U.K., I co-founded Cirque Idyllic, a theatrical Circus collective who toured Europe with an aerial musical ” Cabaret at The end of the world” . Cirque Idyllic also transformed unusual spaces into venues and curated cabaret events.

 

After 5 years of frolics, fun and corsets, I landed back in Bristol to have a baby and a new passion for creative arts for children has grown with my daughter.

 

In 2012 I collaborated with Jacky Crosher to set up Hinged Theatre who produce interactive, highly physical shows for young audiences and their families in outdoor and surprising settings. This led me to study for an MA in theatre for young audiences at Bath Spa university , from which I graduated with a distinction.

In 2016 I moved to the Forest of Dean where I have been developing my practice to work inclusively in partnership with Artspace Cinderford 

I  am qualified as an inclusive arts leader and in aerial rigging for performance and teaching.

I am also a qualified aerial yoga teacher.

I have an advanced DBS certificate and have safe guarding training for vulnerable adults and children 

 

and........ I still find time to entertain the public as comedy walkabout characters, on stilts, roller skates , on the ground and in the air. I can also be seen at private events performing fire shows and aerial acts.
