Aerial Antics

Circus, life & other things of interest


It’s fucking ridiculous that we have to spend our adult lives relearning history and deconstructing the truth from the lies we were fed in school.

Shout out to all of the oldest children…who were used as the tester kids and now watch their younger siblings get away with stuff you would have been killed for.. Justice will never be restored


Having an off day where things go wrong, I come across as a bitch and also humilate myself. Plus, my hip hurts lots.

Although I am looking forward to getting out of Sheffield for a bit and learning new things, I will really miss teaching my weekly stretch class.

I managed to get together a group of dedicated people who can manage an hour a week of being tortured by me. They’re really enthusiastic and they support each other in class. They are amazing and I’ll miss teaching them so much.

Whale stretch! This was unpleasant a few months ago. Now it feels great #stretch #backbend #contortion #training

At the moment I feel like I’m just waiting for things to start.
In 2 weeks I start rehearsals in Birmingham with CircusMash for their show Float. I’m really looking forward to this as I really enjoyed the creative work we did at the audition. Plus, it’s the type of project I’ve been wanting to do for a while.
From 1st September I’ll be training acrobatics for 8 weeks with Polichinelo Circus in Birkenhead. I’m really excited.
I’m feeling really in a rut in Sheffield at the moment. Last year I had to struggle with injury and personal/work “learning experiences”. This year I’ve watched the community here get shut out and fracture and felt helpless. I’m still having to kick up loads of fuss about getting paid - with an organisation that’s in a major crisis.

Tl:Dr. I’m so glad I’ve got 10 weeks of fun challenging things ahead that will get me out of Sheffield.
