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”

Valentine’s cheekiness for the National Centre for Circus Arts
I’m not really a Valentine girl but if that’s an excuse to play with hoops and Bertil Nilsson, then I’m well up for it! This photo was picked by Tumblr for their Radar, awesome teamwork! Photographed by Bertil Nilsson for the National Centre for Circus Arts.
‘Urban Xmas’ photo shoot
Back in my home town in Italy for a few days, I hooked up with old school friend and photographer Riccardo Lancia. We drove around town, our main goal being catching up, after years of not seeing each other. It was a beautiful, crisp winter morning and so we ended up dropping some layers offContinue reading “‘Urban Xmas’ photo shoot”

Over the Christmas period I collaborated with the amazing Bertil Nilsson to create some images for the National Centre for Circus Arts. The theme for the photo shoot was the ‘5 Gold Rings of Christmas’ and consequently, there was a lot of spinning involved.

Glastonbury Festival 2014
Despite the weather and extreme survival conditions, Glastonbury is always amazing. This year, however, was particularly exciting as I got to perform not only ‘Atma’, but also 2 of my most recent hoop acts. ‘Black Out Days’ was specifically devised for the Circus Big Top and, although it was presented as work in progress, it received very positiveContinue reading “Glastonbury Festival 2014”
‘Atma’, 3 years later
This time last year, I was around on the Southbank a lot, performing in Circus Maximus, as part of the Udderbelly Festival. It was such a fun and intense month! My dear and awesome friend Jon Green came down to film me during the first Heat of the competition. So this is my ‘Atma’, 3 years later.
The Hypnotic Honies of Hula
Together with the lovely Jessie Rose, I created a new glow hoop piece that we performed at the Bloomsbury Big Top as part of a series of Christmas shows, produced by Sorcha Ra, last December 2013. This is a 1920’s, Great Gatsby inspired piece, set to a modern, fast paced and fun electro-swing soundtrack. AnyContinue reading “The Hypnotic Honies of Hula”
The Jarvis Party
Jarvis Cocker LOVES hua hoops – FACT. After jamming with him at the Village Underground in 2009, as part of his 3-day ‘Exhibition of himself’, I had the absolute pleasure to perform for the very wonderful Jarvis Cocker’s 50th birthday party. Jarvis personally asked me to perform to Krafterk’s classic ‘Ruckzuck’, which was a great fun challenge,Continue reading “The Jarvis Party”
Glastonbury Festival 2013
An even bigger, even better Circus Big Top was my home for a week at Glastonbury Festival 2013. Once again, it was an absolute pleasure to share the stage with so many incredibly talented performers, coming from all over the world. In fact, thanks also to what was probably the warmest English summer in years,Continue reading “Glastonbury Festival 2013”
