Circus performer on stage, surrounded by the audience, inside a big top tent.

Biography

I’ve been juggling for many years and performing for lots of them. I like to juggle every day, create new things, and make bread.

I tour Internationally performing in Circuses, Cabarets and Street Theatre Festivals. I have won many awards, from Best Hair Cut to Golden Hat and Peoples Choice. In 2016 at Perth (Australia) International Fringe Festival I won ‘Best Circus’ for my first full length indoor show. I am mostly a non-verbal performer, which has enabled me to perform in over 30 countries, on 4 of the Continents.

Sometimes the works I produce are non-verbal and highly skilled, with elements of clowning and interactiveness, at other times they are silly and funny.
