Eric Mitchell


“Working with upswing, has always been a delight. They give you freedom as a performer to bring what you’ve got to the table; your skills and unique experience. They trust their performers to do what they do best, not everyone does that”.

Ericson (AKA Eric) has been performing as a circus artist for over 10 years, working across Europe and the rest of the world, from from China to Malaysia and Mexico to Saudi Arabia.

Eric’s circus practice is in ground-based acrobatics, Chinese pole and hand to hand, but he’s also a stunt performer and blends this with parkour, tricking and gymnastics. He has a degree in Acting and Stage Combat from East15 acting school in Essex, and has gone on to perform stunts in various Netflix series’ and red carpet events.

“I want to continue doing what I love and continue to inspire the younger generation, those who want to learn and love to watch.”
