“Circus is an energetic, beautiful and powerful storytelling art from and I love seeing audiences reactions to the work. Joining Upswing at the beginning of this journey with the project Seasons is particularly exciting as my interest lies heavily in cross collaboration and making work in unusual spaces. Upswings desire to create work with circus alongside narrative is really fascinating for me and I am thrilled to be part of the team in this next chapter.”
