Bete de Cirque - New Show Research
After shooting over to Montreal I met up with the new 'William the Great' cast to work on the next installment for Bête de Cirque. Starting with a street show up in Mt. Carmel and then a finale plank and banquine act that were performed with the amazing people from 'Cirque Carpe Diem' as part of the off season for the 'Montréal Complètement Cirque’ festival. After that, the funding for the 2017 project began, with three weeks to create as much material as possible (acts, characters, skills and themes for a touring show!) and film it all. Over the next couple of months, it will all be put together and sent off.

Joining the "Trash Test Dummies"
In April of 2016 I had the privilege of performing with a great company and their award winning show "Trash Test Dummies”. In collaboration with Country Arts WA we took the show for a 7 week tour performing 22 shows in country towns all over WA.
Driving more then 500kms some days, we took the show to some very remote towns that usually have no access to the arts. With performing, traveling, teaching circus and physical theater workshops, set up and pack down it was a very hands on experience. All in all, touring with the Trash Test Dummies proved to be a great experience.

The Carnival of Wonder - Round 2
Odds & Ends Circus is at it again, bringing the people a show full of fire, fun and some funky attitude, with the very grumpy ring master, Mr Von Farraviniti, and his "Carnival of Wonder". After performing last year in the Melbourne Fringe Festival, the young Australian company brought a new look to their comedy show, performing in the amazing Melba Spiegeltent. It was once again a great hit.
