Spring has sprung!

Having completed our intensive training with the amazing Polichinelo Circus and a sell out acro convention last month, we are gearing up for the summer season at Orange HQ.

This week we are at the National Centre for Circus working with Joli Vyann on a new piece combining contemporary dance, contact improvisation and my favourite oversized prop the walking globe.

We are also premiering the new collaboration TEAvolution! with Emergency Exit Arts this weekend at The Lounge in Roehampton.
