Scrolling News 2022 📜

Christmas is coming and this year I’m excited to tell you that I will be heading to the northern hemisphere to perform in Weihnachtscircus Hanover. www.weihnachtscircus-hannover.com
The show runs 16 – 31 December. If you are anywhere near, do come and see the show, it looks amazing.

It was so great to be back out there this year after two years of waiting. It made my summer tour in Europe really special. I got to play without any restrictions and connect with audiences properly again. I also got to perform in the French Alps which was just spectacular. I had almost forgotten how much I missed mucking about for a living!

This photo was taken at ParkPerPlex Norderstedt Germany last May.
In June I got to play The Glastonbury Festival and connect with some great old friends. In July straight after Glastonbury I got covid for two weeks, what a surprise! Sadly I missed out on teaching in Bristol at the fabulous Unit 15 Creation space. But fear not, there are plans to reschedule for next year, most likely in June. I’ll keep you posted here and on Facebook.

Last July I performed on an Italian TV show. It was a very odd experience, but it paid well! The show went out in October. You may have to be in Italy to watch this.

Gigs are slowly coming in for 2023, keep an eye on my  TOUR  page. 
I am expecting more dates to be added soon.

Scroll down to see what I have been up to these past couple of very strange years.

This was fun, I got together with some friends this summer and we took to the streets of Wellington with The DOOR KNOBS show.

Over the winter my great friend Jessica Arpin invited me onto her radio show for a long chat about my work and adventures. It was a lot of fun and you can listen to it here.

I started 2021 performing at one of my favourite festivals The Christchurch Bread and Circus World Buskers Festival here in New Zealand. It was so great to be performing again.
To advertise the festival I was contacted by The Big Idea an online Arts Newsletter to write a short piece on what I would tell my 22 year old self. You can read it here.

This is fun, my great friend Jon Hicks phoned me from London and said his son Eric is doing a circus project at school and wants to interview me. We set up a time and he fired off his questions. Eric is ten years old and he produced a fabulous biography which he deservedly got top marks for. You can view it here.

At the beginning of last summer I got asked by The NZ Herald Newspaper to write a short article on my five favourite festivals. You can read the article here.
