Premiering as a work in progress performance at the Roundhouse in Spring 2016, Pop Circus will bring together a creative team from across the worlds of theatre, dance, music, fashion and circus – a new collaboration aiming to create a new kind of British performance, that is thrilling and glamorous but also anarchic and subversive.

When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty but of her weirdness.
They wanted her to change back into what she always had been…
But she had wings.
The hoops in these images are LED smart hoops by SpinFX. I can program them to change colours and patterns to any chosen music, which allows for endless possibilities to create bespoke acts and fit with specific requirements and special events. You can see more photos here.

After becoming a regular performer at The Box, London, I had the pleasure to go and spin my hoops at its Dubai partner club, The Act – the highest theatre venue in the world.
Located on the 42nd and 43rd floor of the Shangri-la Hotel, The Act is a very refreshing antidote to Dubai’s sometimes dry entertainment and nightclub scenes.
It was certainly a fantastic experience being part of one of the most exciting shows in the Middle East.
In celebration of the 15th Petronas Malaysia Formula 1 Grand Prix, a series of galas, parties, competitions and fashion shows were held in Kuala Lumpur for the Mercedes – Benz Stylo Fashion Grand Prix 2013.
Stylo also presented its first ever public showcase at the Petronas Twin Towers @live concert.
It was the 3rd time that the Twin Towers @live concert was held in Malaysia and all 3 times it was organized in conjunction with the Formula One race happening at Sepang International Circuit.
This was a massive, 2 – days, public concert, that attracted more than 30.000 people and had an international line – up of artists coming from both east and west.
I had the great pleasure to entertain the crowd with my glow hula hoops, as part of an act that was directed by choreographer Pat Ibrahim, to the soundtrack of DJ Mario Schizo.
On the same night, artists such as South Korean boy band, U-KISS, and American pop star, Demi Lovato, were among the acts that took the stage at the free public show that went on from 5pm to 2am, despite the rain started to pour down during the night.
It was such a buzz performing for thousands of people on such a gorgeous stage! And an absolute pleasure working with all the team from London and the lovely staff from Kuala Lumpur, who welcomed and made us feel at home every day. This included talented make up artists, like Lin Chong, who did a wonderful job of my white cyborg character.
Thanks to Sydney Jo Jackson and STYLO international for making this happen. I am very much looking forward to the next one!
