ANNA, GENERAL MANAGER

“Upswing’s ethos of telling stories in extraordinary ways, bringing new dimensions and meaning to what Circus can do to move, provoke and delight us is so important for our cultural landscape today. I am thrilled to be joining the team as we greet new challenges and brighter horizons.”

Anna has joined Upswing from Artichoke where she was maternity cover General Manager during what turned out to be a more eventful year than anticipated! She previously worked for Punchdrunk as their Administrator, the Bush Theatre as Administrator and PA to the Executive during their 2017 capital build campaign, and started her career with Youth Music Theatre UK (now known as British Youth Music Theatre) first within the fundraising team and then as a Producer.

New work that combines art forms and disciplines is her passion and she is looking forward to delving into the world of Circus. Anna is also a trustee for the Mary Baker Trust and for Christ Church Spitalfields, and when she isn’t in Zoom meetings or seeing live shows she also loves playing Tag Rugby!
