-Tumbling, object manipulation, rube goldberg machines and clown - scalable length 7-20mins
Transit looks into the mind of a character who's identity is unknown as he builds contraptions out of spoons, string and a host of things you might find in that kitchen drawer everyone has marked "misc". The audience was encouraged to ask who is he? What does he desire? Is he an inventor? Is he fixing something? Does he know what he is doing or is he simply bored? I tried to make a character that I hope everyone can relate to with the simple pleasure of doing, experimenting and making.
Initially created for Transit and supported by NofitState this act received direction support from Firenza Guidi and costume design by Rhiannon Matthews. It has been performed at The Network for International Circus Exchange in Cardiff and Durham Juggling and Circus Festival 2014. This act has gone on to form the foundation of my solo show Delta S.
-Comedy, rope, creative rigging - 8mins
Rigged blurs the boundary between technician and performer as the audience follows the unfortunate and yet joyful tale of the rigger who finds himself at the centre of the action. Watch him as he just tries to do his job before jumping out of the roof!

Me and Kate Inez-Kieran first met while both volunteering on Parklife, several years later we found ourselves both on Nofitstate's trainee performer programme. With Transit approaching Kate asked me if I'd be interested in counterweighting her for her act , I said yes and so we made this piece. We later redeveloped the piece at Volt #3.

-Technical club juggling - 4mins15
First made for the final of the Somewhereto_Show Off Competition at the London Olympic Park No.14 is packed full of highly technical 3 club tricks set to a fast tempo rendition of Beethoven's piano sonata No .14. The clubs weave in an impossible manor moving quickly before reaching perfect balance.

Me and Emily Nichol first met on Barricade in 2012 and then began to create work together during our time together as trainee performers with Nofistate and started to make material together during the first stage of R&D for Block. We made our first act together for The Road and then went on to perform it again for Kiss My Christmas.
