Spent the day performing with Public Dreams, entertaining the crowds at Olympic Plaza in Vancouver. Made my flag boxes.. a real favorite of mine.
I will be traveling to Europe to work with a fantastic group of contact manipulation artists on a new show in development.
I improvised this short routine for a performance in Vancouver in 2008. It has since grown into a longer act, which I now perform as a solo at different events.
I worked with VCS from 2007 – 2010, helping them support the growth of the school (from a humble 60 students to over 600) and it was a fascinating experience to learn about the foundations of circus education. Along the way, I did several performances with Inner Ring Circus, notably:
Bounce (toured several productions from 2008-2010) Video Link
Intensive workshop I developed and ran for a group of about 20 jugglers during a weekend with Fenfire.at in Vienna, Austria. By the end of the workshop, the students were able to demonstrate a variety of manipulation concepts, many of which are showcased in this video.
A family entertainment circus/theater show in Vancouver. I worked with them from 2008-2010 performing dance, character interactions, box manipulation, ring, contact juggling, 3 ball juggling and a lot of other things with this crazy cast of acrobats and jugglers. I created my PONG routine for the show, as well as helped direct the first stage version (which featured a lovely trampoline duet)
