Upside down, from high up in the air, is a very special point of view! I started getting involved with Cambridge Community Circus towards the end of my Ph.D., and since then have been enjoying the practice and community both there and at High Wired.

In my practice I mainly focus on aerial silks and rope. Though I’ve also been doing a bit of cloud, and tried out hoop (not for me at all) and trapeze (fun, but there’s only so much time and I’d rather be good at fewer things than stay more mediocre at all of them ;-))…

Sadly, the pandemic has put a pause to Aerials practice, but I am looking forward to being back in the air as soon as is safe & possible again!

To get an idea of what aerial acrobatics can be like in action, here’s a recording of my performance at CCC’s 2018 autumn show, “Out Of This World”:
