Oliver Smith-Wellnitz  Australian-born, Montreal-educated circus artist living in Berlin. All about that dance trapeze and those hula hoops.


Heels and Masks and Hoops, oh my!! Thanks @danilopachecoo for this awesome rehearsal shot from Varietespektakel - Cirque de Tuque "In Between". We're in Cologne/Bonn until August 26 so if you're in the area get in touch! 😊

And of course I could never have done it without the help, love, support, and relentless idea generation of the wonderful @scwoodzy ! Thanks for constantly pushing and inspiring me, you big goober. ❤️

Ladies and gentlemen, bringing to the stage for the very first time, the incomparable, the messy, AUBREY WODONGA! (The one woman from Melbourne in the audience here in Berlin loved it, I promise)

Guess who popped his drag-cherry one week ago? This guy. Or girl. Whatever, you get the point. Big thanks to @giezapoke, @pansypresents and @monsterronsons for the opportunity to be a big ol' mess on your wonderful stage! I am officially addicted. 😍👠✨

I don't know about you, but I think my hair looks GREYt! If you're wondering why that joke was so funny, it's because it wasn't mine. 🤘 I blame @scwoodzy, also big thanks to @berlin_friseure 😍

"Oliver is a shoe-fan" - Found some interesting photos of me when I was visiting my grandma, and suddenly my whole life makes a lot more sense. ✨👠✨

And we can't forget the lovely faces of the survivors of week two of the #IADF2017! These photos were all taken on the same day, but I think the second is a more accurate depiction of how we were feeling! Much fun. Such exhausted. 🐶

My new obsession, found while playing around with some "Fake Acro" with students at the #IADF2017. Acrobatics for the lazy ✌️(p.s. Wow, Instagram, what did you do to the quality??)

Wow have I been slack with my posts lately! Time for some catching up ... First up, some end-of-the-week selfies with my first four classes at this year's Irish Aerial Dance Festival!! 🍀 I had such a great time and met so many incredible people (students and teachers both). It might have only just finished, but I am already pumped for next year!

Things got puggin' weird last night. That's it. That's all I got. ✌️


7am in Berlin, no sleep: Life imitates art.
