One of my favourite moments from Circulation festival in Dunedin this past weekend!
This move (called the octopus I think) had me laughing the whole time it was happening. Thanks to the Twisty Twins for sharing the move and playing with me!

Train. Rehearse. Work. Eat. Sleep. Repeat!

Refreshing some choreography with a bit of new energy from my recent travels. I've been getting up at 5:30am in the morning just to find the space in my days to dedicate the time I need to circus... I am not a morning person.... But for the love of circus I will do it!

Back in New Zealand and back into training... This is how I get my aerial hoop to the gym. Thanks for the loan of the wheelbarrow @niktazdavies! Paraparaumu styles.

Another adventure has drawn to a close and again I'm always left humbled by the lessons learnt from circus and travelling. I was nervous about this trip to Canada and then Indonesia because I wasn't sure if it was financially sensible or what I needed for my career as an artist. Where was it going to lead? Why am I so resistant to staying still?... I think the nerve wracking thing I discovered from being overseas this year is that I actually want to be back home in New Zealand. I don't mean I never want to travel again but I've come to realise that a lot of the goals I have require stability and consistency. They also require collaboration to become fulfilled. I have been a lone travelling circus artist for awhile now, dropping into communities temporarily and then leaving again for the past 3 years and wow it has been incredible but it feels like a new phase now. I am super excited for the new collaborations and projects upcoming in New Zealand and with the circus community there.

I have to do a special shout out to @momentomcollective. These guys have been a massive part of my international travelling circus family. It is to them that I owe a lot of thanks for where I am and how I am now as an artist. I was with them last year in Central America for their first residency and I got super comfortable in my weirdness and made the most beautiful friendships to last a lifetime. This year I was wondering if it would be possible for me to get something out of going when I'd already grown so much and was thinking that I should focus on my own work... but alongside my growth, Momentom Collective has grown too and this residency really levelled up. They provide a space for you to train and work on your own projects. And again meet the most incredible humans with whom you can do future collaborations with. Always a valuable experience.

What I leave with now is a confidence that I know what steps I need to take next. And I've dropped the worry about feeling like I need to travel to grow. Next level up is happening back home.

A lot of firsts the last week! First high one foot in hand, first standing hand to hand (sorry no picture) and first 3 high.

Thanks @chrisacarlos for making me do all the things. My face might look calm in these pictures but I'm concentrating so hard on not freaking out 😂 .

Teaching in one of the most beautiful aerial spaces I have ever been in! My students killed it today and endured the pain that comes along with lyra. Well done!! #aerialhoop #teaching #cerceau #gazellepose ・・・

My last spin in Montreal. Thank you Montreal for everything you have given me and taught me. I almost cried so many times leaving La Caserne knowing that it might be quite awhile until I come back. My heart was wide open leaving and I'm thankful to the heartfelt last conversations I had with a few people there just before I left. It was a special moment.

This time I don't know when I'll be back. It feels different leaving this time and I'm actually feeling excited about some upcoming stability in NZ. Still processing this change in my mindset and what it all means.

Since the cirque is on vacations this summer, we decided to throw our own little show. #epiklife #cirquedusoleil
