Nelson Fringe Festival
From May 5 – 9 I’m heading to one of my favourite cities in New Zealand to perform at the Nelson Fringe. As well as doing a few shows I’m teaching a couple of clown workshops. If you are in town do check it out, it’s going to be fun.
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 https://fraserhooper.com/biography/
At the beginning of last summer I got asked by The NZ Herald Newspaper to write a short article on my five favourite festivals.
