 Producing experience 

Pants Down Circus - 2012 - present
I was a founding member of my own professional touring company Pants Down Circus
which was founded in 2012. This has required me to become familiar with the legal
requirements of running a company including the legal nature of partnerships.
I secured and managed the following tours for Pants Down Circus
• 2014 – WA Circus Festival
o Perth Fringe Festival
o Adelaide Fringe Festival
o Edinburgh Fringe Festival
o Singapore
• 2015 – Recklinghausen Fringe (Germany)
o Regional Victoria
• 2016 – Regional Queensland
o Netherlands
• 2017 - USA (Florida, Virginia and Michigan)
o Christchurch World Buskers Festival (New Zealand)
In managing the tours of Pants Down Circus I was required to take responsibility for:
• Creative development of the production
• Applications for funding and negotiation of contracts
• Coordination of all production requirements such as staging, lighting and rigging
• Managing tour budgets
• Researching and confirming logistics and itineraries
• Marketing and publicity - including print media, social media, television and radio
interviews
• Reporting to funding bodies
• Communicating with supporting partners such as Auspicious Arts
• Strategic networking to ensure ongoing work throughout Europe and North America
from 2014 - 2017


Solo Performer 2011-present
I also have toured other shows of my own including
• 2012 – Regional NSW - The Very Circusy Caterpillar
• 2016 - Adelaide Fringe - The Loneliest Number
• 2017 - Canada (Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Ottawa and Edmonton)– The Big Wheel
Show
As a solo performer I have all of the management responsibilities already listed above but
carry an additional load with pitching, networking and marketing.
