News and Shows

Shows!

I was a little bit behind with updating my news before lockdown and somehow I didn't manage to catch up. But, now things are starting to happen, it's an exciting time. I've done 3 shows and a filming in the last 3 weeks, which is more than I've done all year so far. A performing […]

Drudwen Tour of Wales

I spent a large part of 2019 in Wales, not visiting family and friends, but working on a show. Drudwen is a bilingual (Welsh-English) circus theatre show. Written by Kate Driver-Jones for North Wales based company "Cimera" it is a dark and twisted fairytale, that charts the destruction of the natural world by the forces […]

New Work and Artist Support Fund

A lot of work goes in behind the scenes on gathering support for new projects, and as every fund is hugely competitive these days, it can be a bit of a demoralising process. However, when you do gain support, it is hugely satisfying. So this year I have been trying to develop "Who Do They […]

National Centre for Craft and Design Residency

One of my great pleasures, and an entirely new experience was my residency at NCCD as part of their Circus exhibition. My residency was made up of a few elements- performances at the events for the opening and closing of the exhibition, working in the gallery and teaching both public rope workshops and a masterclass […]

Sheffield Cathedral

January hasn't been that quiet at all this year, which was pleasant and surprising. It brought the unexpected opportunity to perform inside one of Sheffield's most beautiful buildings- The Cathedral. It is sometimes given over for outside events and this was a corporate awards ceremony and dinner for Ask Broadband. The preamble to the event […]
