I was recently (January 2018) appointed stand-in programme leader (working less than half-time, and just for 12 months) of the fulltime circus high school of St.Botvid's / Cirkus Cirkör Gymnasiet in Stockholm.
I'm extremely pleased and excited about what this brings for me in experience and knowledge. I have been teaching courses for Cirkus Cirkör since September 2014, the ethos and pedagogy of the Cirkör approach to Circus has been refreshing and a support to my previous pedagogy as a teacher. Pictured in the background I am teaching in South Sudan (November 2015) with Clowner Utan Gränser, I hope to work for them much more in the future
This Autumn 2015, sees me begin teaching creative workshops to the fulltime Gymnasium students at Cirkör. I also taught for the third consecutive year at Edinburgh Aerial Acrobatics Convention in early September.
I have been teaching and working with children, teenagers, and adults on a regular basis through workshops and festivals for over 10 years, using skills not only as a motivational teacher, but as an entertainer and make-up artist.
I am equally happy teaching beginners of all ages, as well as advanced professional performers.
At professional level I like to bring in my thoughts on Circus Graffiti (my own term) through creative workshop-ing and a refreshed approach to equipment/props; this is an idea which i am currently developing about how to change the world through Circus (no big task..)...
From beginner to advanced level, through English, French, German and now Swedish, workshops may be booked in;
Creative development (All levels and suitable particularly for physical performers)
Physical Theatre/Dance (all levels)
Floor acrobatics (for beginners-intermediate)
Aerial Acrobatics (all levels)
Yoga (all levels drawing on different styles to suit the participants).
