Aerial and Circus Skills for the Theatre

Jen is available for aerial and circus skills training and choreography for any size of theatre production. She can work to your detailed requirements or create work to a less prescribed brief. She loves to bring out the best in performers and will always ensure they feel confident and ready for the show.

Previous work includes Around the World in 80 Days for York Theatre Royal, A Midsummer Night’s Dream for Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre at Blenheim Palace and Hetty Feather for York Theatre Royal where Jen took performers with little or no previous aerial or circus skills experience and trained them to performance level for their shows.

Jen was awarded a Developing Your Creative Practice grant by Arts Council England to widen her aerial knowledge to more unusual pieces of equipment and to further develop her devising skills during 2021 under the mentorship of Charlotte Mooney of Ockham’s Razor.
