Like an ever spinning wheel, life sets us a challenge when we least expect it, to test our courage and willingness to change… ‘Hoops In Motion’ is a wonderfully exciting journey, a piece of circus and visual arts, originally commissioned by John Bishop and further developed by Cirque Bijou and with support from the NationalContinue reading “The new Hoops In Motion”
A revamped version of my ‘Black Out Days’ LED hula hoop act, performed with latest technology smart LED hula hoops at Jackson’s Lane Theatre, London, 2015. Filmed by Mark Morreau and Thomas Forsyth. Music by Phantogram.
I have always had a great interest in animation and mixed media, so when Cirque Bijou offered me to collaborate on a bespoke piece that mixed my hoops with Howie Bailey‘s visual graphics, I dived right into it. The piece was commissioned as an intro to the John Bishop Show on BBC1, which made the whole project evenContinue reading “Hula Hoop & Motion Graphics – Live on the John Bishop Show”
Just as 2015 kicked in, I had the immense pleasure to work with top gentleman juggler Mat Ricardo and perform ‘Atma’ in his End of the world cabaret at the Albany, London. It was an ‘Apocalypse now’ sort of show, where the only thing left to do before the asteroid hit the earth, was to steepContinue reading “‘Atma’ for SmashFestUK, the Albany, London 2015”

In fact, thanks also to what was probably the warmest English summer in years,Continue reading “Glastonbury Festival 2013”

In ‘Gynoid’ I’m exploring movement and manipulation, as well as the relation between the machine and the human body, through hula hoops. How is our body affected by the props and tools, that we use every day? If our body is the main tool, the machine, what can influence and radically transform its appearance andContinue reading “‘Gynoid’ Photoshoot”
“It is the unhappy marriage of physicality and mental instability that enables Box of Frogs to convey a visceral, memorable experience. While not a typically delightful tale, the generous range of performances ensures that the sheer joy of going to the circus is not abandoned.” From a review by Terri-Anne Teo for remotegoat.co.uk In Autumn 2012,Continue reading “‘Box of Frogs’ Tour 2012”
